Blossom Dearie, Apr 28 1926 - Feb 7 2009.

It was said of Blossom Dearie (her Christian name) by New Yorker critic Whitney Balliett that "her voice would scarcely reach the second storey of a dollhouse."

Dear dear Blossom Dearie. I remember she was singing around town when I lived in NYC but somehow I never got my act together to see her. I wonder if she has CD's... that description of her voice barely reaching the second storey of a dollhouse is so precious!
