I agree, sad.

Of all the things I learned from Schoolhouse Rock, the greatest was a deep and abiding love of Blossom Dearie. She has the most haunting voice imaginable at the end of "Figure Eight." In high school I suddenly felt the desire to hear that voice again and discovered her amazing catalog of music.

I can't say enough about how much personality she breathes into a song. (And her disdain for ALW makes me love her just a bit more than I thought possible.)

Time to go listen to "Always True To You in My Fashion" a few too many times...


She was one of my dad's favourite singers. I am going to have to pull out some cds. Every mix I make for my daughters has a Dearie song on it. Sad, sad day.
