This delightful tribute show to Blossom Dearie encapsulates the best tunes from her repertoire and stars Australia’s “first lady of jazz singing” Janet Seidel.
Blossom was something of a cult favourite from Paris to New York to London. Even after her passing in 2008, she is championed by those in the know as a quirky and funny artist of the highest standard, not just for her clever compositions and unique vocal artistry, but also for her exquisite jazz piano styling.
Janet was first captivated by this music heard nationally on ABC Radio, when their urbane programming was at its zenith. This tribute show sold out at Festival Theatre Adelaide, Melbourne Recital Centre, Glasgow Recital Hall and ultimately at Ronnie Scotts in London, where Blossom first triumphed in the swinging sixties.
