Her involvement with "Schoolhouse Rock" earns her a mention in on this board, though that was a pretty minor aspect of her career. IMHO.

So sad to hear about that!

She was one of my all-time favourite female crooners...

Her version of "Peel Me A Grape" was the best I ever heard...

I got hooked on her charming style with her My Gentleman Friend album. She was a delight.

Blossom Dearie did some fabulous versions of songs from films such as 'Watch What Happens' from The Umbrellas of Cherbourg composed by Michel Legrand and Jacques Demy, here recorded live at Ronnie Scott's Club in London in 1966

Sad to hear this. I loved her version of "Someone to Watch Over Me."

I really like that one, too. So simple and without showy affectation.

Who could ever forget her later version of "I'm Hip?"
