The Bebop Shop : Body & Soul: Billie, Ella & The Great Jazz Voices : Blossom Dearie
So lets get one thing out of the way first of all, yes her real name was Blossom Dearie, well actually it was Marguerite Blossom Dearie but she wisely dropped the first name to give herself a fighting chance of being remembered in the highly competitive music business. It seemed to have worked as Blossoms baby doll voice graced the worlds stages for decades having become a solo singer after spells with Woody Herman and Alvino Rey in the mid 1940s. Our four classic album selections find Miss Dearie in the company of such great musicians as Roy Brown, Ed Thigpen, Mundell Lowe, Herb Ellis and Jo Jones.
All four albums have been digitally re-mastered for probably the finest sound quality ever! (AVID Entertainment) Price: £8.99
