The Harkit label continues its series of archival live recordings from the famed London jazz club Ronnie Scott's with a second sampling of Blossom Dearie, this time from a February 1966 date backed by the rhythm section of bassist Jeff Clyne and drummer Allan Ganley. By the mid-'60s Dearie was living in London and she played Ronnie Scott's regularly, often as a showcase for introducing new material that, in many cases, never appeared on her studio LPs. Even songs played for the first time retain the grace and sophistication that are her hallmarks, however, and her girlish vocals evoke the sheer joy of performance with an exuberance matched by few singers.

The first in the Harkit label's series of archival live recordings from the famed London jazz club Ronnie Scott's captures the remarkable Blossom Dearie in July 1966. Backed by the house rhythm section of bassist Freddy Logan and drummer Allan Ganley, Dearie is the very essence of sophistication and effortless cool. Herself a London resident at this point in her career, the singer articulates the city's candy-colored mod culture with knowing precision. Assimilating the sound and sensibility of post-Beatlemania pop with an ease greater than any other jazz singer of her generation, Dearie's girlish yet intimate vocals perfectly capture the sensual innocence of a society poised on the brink of sexual revolution. And of course, her repertoire is hipper than thou, embracing everything from "One Note Samba" to "Peel Me a Grape." A stellar performance, complete with superior sound and extensive liner notes.

Actually born with the name Blossom Dearie in the New York Catskills, she began playing piano at an early age and studied classical music before making the switch to jazz while in high school. After graduation, she moved to New York and began appearing with vocal groups like the Blue Flames (attached to Woody Herman) and the Blue Reys (with Alvino Rey). She also played cocktail piano around the city, and moved to Paris in 1952 to form her own group, the Blue Stars of France. Dearie also appeared in a nightclub act with Annie Ross, and made a short, uncredited appearance on King Pleasure's vocalese classic, "Moody's Mood for Love." She recorded an obscure album of piano solos, and in 1954, the Blue Stars hit the national charts with a French version of "Lullaby of Birdland."

An idiosyncratic, girlish voice, snappy, flawless deliverance, and an irrepressible sense of light-hearted swing made Blossom Dearie one of the most pleasant singers of the vocal era. Her tenderness and glisten ensured that she'd never treat standards as the well-worn songs they often appeared in less competent hands. And though her reputation was made on record with a string of excellent albums for Verve during the '50s, she remained a draw with Manhattan cabaret audiences long into the new millennium.

What a fantastic idea it was to put the subtle, unaffected voice and piano of Blossom Dearie at the service of band leader Jack Marshall. The arrangements are lovely and varied, featuring lots of different instruments at the fore of any given song and/or given brief solo voice. Absolutely lovely, and a certain must for fans of the magical Ms. Dearie.
