Blossom Dearie’s first 1957 LP on Verve is delightful. She was only 32 when this was recorded, but sang and played with the calm confidence of a placid lake. Only discovered this album from Terry Teachout’s mention of “Blossom’s Blues”, which I found after seeing a D.G. Myers tweet mentioning Teachout as a friend, which I found after reading Myers’s moving and wise speech, Choosing life in the face of death, which started with googling “how use blog as commonplace book”. There’s where Saturday morning went.
