“My husband and I saw the show tonight. I heard about it via
Freddie Johnson. We are both familiar, although not intimately, with Blossom Dearie. The show most definitely did fly, and we were transported right along with it!! The music, the singing, the entire vibe, was supremely sublime. And what a sweet treat to know that Blossom wrote a song about John Lennon, who I have adored since I was 12 years old!! It was a fabulous, soul-satisfying night, and we thank you so much for bringing yourself, and Blossom’s music, to Studio City, California. Come back soon!
“I have loved Blossom since I heard a recording of “If I Were a Bell” from Guys and Dolls. Thanks for your wonderful tribute. You have a great talent.
And the bass player wasn’t so bad either.”
“It was great fun, very satisfying, and awesome to play with Nick and you. Anytime you are on the left coast give me a shout, I’ll be there! Thanks again for the opportunity to work with you, let’s not let so much time pass before we hang out again ok? And by the way Jim has a cat named Blossom Dearie if you didn’t know!”
“I had never heard of Blossom Dearie. No idea who she was. Had never met Jaye before, but new we attended the same university and had many mutual friends. It was a wonderful evening finally meeting Jaye and learning about Blossom Dearie. I loved the presentation and the music, but must say the entire evening finally connected with me when I learned of her role with School House Rock and the song Figure 8. Jaye invited us to sing along if we knew the song, so I did! That cd is my our car, and I play it everyday while taking Bodhi to preschool. Now when we get to that song, it takes on an entirely new meaning. That you Jaye for such an entertaining and educational evening. Beautiful! All the best. Much success.”
