Tribute Tuesday is not a regular segment on BTA, but I felt that I should give recognition where it's due. Blossom Dearie passed away of natural causes on February 7th, 2009 at the age of 82. She'll be remembered for her jazz vocal inspiration and her piano-boop sound. There isn't a song that won't put a smile on your face. The above photo is dated 2007; At the age of 80, Dearie maitained a regular stints in New York and London.
Maybe it's because of the Grammys, but sad news went virtually unnoticed. For those who are familiar, we'll play her music in remembrance and those who aren't, it's never to late to experience.
