4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy soulful and a sense of humour...
This album is a great collection of gentle soulful melodies, old favourites (a lovely arrangement of Tea for Two) and some real sweet funny songs like Rhode Island. At first you might think Blossom is another boring female voice, muich of a muchness with lots of similar stagey wannabe jazzers. But there's something different about this talented pianist - she's so sparky...

4.0 out of 5 stars Sexy soulful and a sense of humour..., 30 Sep 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Verve Jazz Masters 51 (Audio CD)
This album is a great collection of gentle soulful melodies, old favourites (a lovely arrangement of Tea for Two) and some real sweet funny songs like Rhode Island. At first you might think Blossom is another boring female voice, muich of a muchness with lots of similar stagey wannabe jazzers. But there's something different about this talented pianist - she's so sparky and spiky, but her voice is feline, langurous and sounds like she's lying in satin sheets, singing for herself.. but then suddenly she hits you with an unashamedly ballsy note, a sexy lick or a crazy-girl vibe. She infuses every piece of her singing with a different personality, whilst maintaining great smoothness on the piano...
I came across Blossom Dearie by accident and she really is the sound of falling in love... give it a try...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine pianist and really strange singer, 29 Oct 2008
This review is from: Verve Jazz Masters 51 (Audio CD)
What can I say?
This compillation was basically my introduction to Blossom Dearie (except for a very fine song I've heard her do with King Pleasure)...
Her piano playing is very strong, her accompanient crew also (Ray Brown, Jo Jones, Ed Thigpen...), but that strange, childish voice... It's an acquired taste, I have to admit it, and I haven't acquired it yet... But I'm getting there!

Every time I listen to this fine Verve compillation I hear more and more depth in singing that at first glance sounds anything BUT deep. There's a lot of irony, innuendo that might even border on kinky?
I'm not sure. But I'm intrigued... And I'll keep listening.

Sadly, she's gone now after a career of entertainment of six decades or so, but through the wonders of electronics, Blossom will still be singing 100 years from now. I have (I think) almost all of her albums minted, for these reasons: a sweet, tiny voice (wouldn't reach the second floor of a dollhouse without amplification), perfect unadulterated phrasing, musically perfect in adherence to the way the music was written or intended to be performed, and all that is going on while she plays the piano-note perfectly. She also was an interesting character in herself, and gathered some of the most talented and interesting friends around her. 'Easy Street' is about easy listening, and so is Blossom, bless 'er.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blossom para siempre, 15 July 2010
This review is from: Verve Jazz Masters 51 (Audio CD)
Una cantante que te envuelve con su voz preciosa y con una cierta carga de ironía. Mastica las palabras y juega con ellas. Deliciosa.

This is a beautiful record. I had heard one of the tracks on the radio and I now love all of the tracks. It is an ideal choice of songs from Blossom Dearie.
