RIP Blossom Dearie

Blossom Dearie - May I Come In? (lala) The beguiling jazz chanteuse, 84, passed away in in her sleep, likely to skip over into the world of dreams her pixie voice evokes. Here is her NYTimes Obituary. She was still playing regular gigs through 2006 - not a bad run.

Here is her signature tune "I'm Hip"

To my generation, Dearie is best known for her haunting vocals on this segment of the Schoolhouse Rocks! Saturday morning cartoon shorts of the 70s & 80s.
