Blossom-dearie-sings_small This week on the show, we’re continuing our 100th birthday celebration of singer and songwriter Blossom Dearie. Last time on the show, we showcased Dearie’s classic period in the late 1950s, and her six remarkable albums for Verve Records. And this week, I will chronicle the next chapter of her career in the 1960s and 1970s. During this time, Dearie moved to London, discovered her own voice as a songwriter, and eventually forged her own path as a music producer, taking full creative control over her work. I’ll feature some of the musical highlights along the way.
