RIP, Blossom Dearie

Blossom Dearie: My Gentleman Friend: "Someone To Watch Over Me" [mp3]

I just found out that Jazz singer/pianist Blossom Dearie died this past weekend at the age of 82 from natural causes, and I have to admit, I'm a bit of a mess about it because I absolutely adore Ms. Dearie. In fact, I love Blossom Dearie so much that one of my buddies actually asked me once if I was gay.

Some folks just don't understand.

Anyways, I've just cracked the seal on a new bottle of Makers Mark, and I may very well call in sick tomorrow.

Rest in peace, Blossom. You were amazing.

Hotcha! Hank
