It was as a student in the 1960s that I first encountered Blossom. She had a late night show on BBC radio. She became a much-valued friend. It was not just her music--especially, "Soon It's Gonna Rain", a particular favourite--but also her manner; gentle, confidential, lightly humourous--hers was the approach of a civil and uplifting presence I greatly needed in those very demanding days. I had a small room in the top floor of a North London (Muswell Hill) Rooming House. From there I could look out over tthe lights of that great city that never sleeps. Blossom was the companion--it never occurred to me that she was not a Black woman, for she had very obvious Soul--who shared these demanding times with me--and my cat, a small, but affectionate and vocal Siamese I had acquired; a "tough guy" I had named Bogie--after the original cinema tough guy, Humphrey Bogart. Blossom has never left me. And it is thanks to our magic modern cyber-tech that tonight I can hear her as clearly and wonderfully as I did during those first encounters now nearly 60 years ago. I am so grateful. ...I miss you Blossom. And like all those others, world-wide, who've expressed their feelings here, I always will in what life here remains to me in these my late Elder years. Good night my dear.

One of a kind is an overused phrase, but in Blossom Dearie's case it is spot-on. Everyone that enjoyed her music (in case they missed this one selection of hers) should listen to Gershwin's composition "Little Jazz Bird". This is a clear, quiet and snappy performance of a beautifully simple melody created by one of our best composers. To me this is emblematic of Blossom's wonderful work.
