Vocalist Sharon Sable and pianist Joe Holt, along with bassist Amy Shook and drummer Mike McShane, will honor the unique voice, extraordinary piano accompaniment and remarkable repertoire and career of this Jazz icon, Blossom Dearie.
With a career spanning six decades, Blossom Dearie’s recordings are still delighting a loyal following of music lovers and fellow musicians. Bill Evans, Annie Ross, John Lennon and Miles Davis were just some of her fans. The combination of her unpretentious vocal delivery and remarkably tasteful piano accompaniment made her music ethereal, understated, impressive and bold, all at the same time. Blossom Dearie performed in a variety of places from the small Jazz clubs and cabarets of Paris, London and NYC, to concert audiences at Carnegie Hall. She recorded many songs of the Great American Songbook (including the lesser known gems), was one of the voices of the Grammy nominated “Schoolhouse Rock” album, and went on write and record original material with many artists such as Johnny Mercer, Michel Legrand and Sting.
