multikulti.com - ocena * * * * 1/2:
Blossom Dearie, amerykańska wokalistka, pianistka i kompozytorka, od lat 50. XX wieku była jedną z najważniejszych wokalistek jazzowych na światowej scenie muzycznej. Obdarzona czystym, dziewczęcym głosem czarowała publiczność na całym świecie do zakończenia kariery w 2006 roku. Niezależna od mód i układów nie pozwalała korygować swego unikalnego stylu, będącego wypadkową wokalistyki jazzowej i anglosaskiego kabaretu, swingu i piosenki artystycznej. Doskonale czuła brazylijską bossa novę, szczególnie chętnie sięgała po utwory Antonio Carlosa Jobima. Przez lata była związana kontraktem z dwoma wielkimi wydawcami płytowymi - Capitol Records i Verve Records. Na fascynację dorobkiem Blossom Dearie powołują się między innymi Stacey Kent i Dianne Reeves.
"Blossom Dearie była jedną z najważniejszych postaci jazzu. Poza tym, że bezbłędnie śpiewała, była uważana za jedną z najlepszych kompozytorek swoich czasów" powiedział w jednym z wywiadów jej długoletni współpracownik, amerykański saksofonista Duncan Lamont.

Audiofilska francuska oficyna wydawnicza FONDAMENTA HIGH-END MUSICAL CRAFTS przygotowała dla fanów jazzu niezwykłą serię wydawniczą THE LOST RECORDINGS COLLECTION.
Na swojej stronie opisują proces pracy nad jakością brzmienia "przywracamy do życia zapomniane lub zagubione nagrania w niespotykanej jakości dźwięku, dzięki rewolucyjnej technologii".
I zaiste technologia, z jakiej korzystają musi być rewolucyjna, skoro z pełną odpowiedzialnością za słowa jesteśmy zdania, że nie było dotąd nagrań klasyków jazzu w tak referencyjnej jakości. Wystarczy sięgnąć po opublikowane już nagrania Elli Fitzgerald, Dave Brubeck Quartet, Oscar Peterson Trio, Sarah Vaughan, Dizzy’ego Gillespie’go, czy Theloniousa Monka by w pełni docenić niespotykaną dotąd jakość techniczną tych wspaniałych nagrań!

„The Lost Sessions from The Netherlands” śpiewaczki Blossom Dearie, z udziałem kilkukrotnych laureatów Grammy Award - The Metropole Orchestra, to wyjątkowa sposobność do zapoznania się z tym nieco zduszonym, niekiedy graniczącym z szeptem, śpiewem jakby od niechcenia wielkiej Blossom Dearie, choć ona sama była osobą niezwykle skromną, strzegącą swojej prywatności, która z pewnością nie zgodziła by się na użycie tego przymiotnika.

Editor's info:
There were many highlights to her musical career: the concerts she gave in the Netherlands between 1968 and 1989 feature prominently among them. This CD is a faithful rendition, thanks especially to the remarkable audio quality. Dearie masterfully performed in all the instrumental formations, from solo shows to the great Metropole Orchestra. She sang repertoires of every kind, from film music – she brought a new dimension to “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” – to Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now”, sensitively revisited. Not to forget a masterpiece whose music she composed, “Winchester in Apple Blossom Time”, with Marilyn Monroe-style boo-be-doops – two superb versions of which can be enjoyed here, as well as her other compositions, those mentioned, and “Bring All Your Love Along”, whose first recording, made in Laren, 1982, is featured here. Blossom, so aptly named, bids the audience adieu, and makes a graceful bow.

About the artist
Born around 1925 in the little village of East Durham, in the Catskill Mountains of New York state, Blossom Margrethe Dearie discovered music at the earliest age, as she would always find someone’s laps to sit on at the family piano, and was very soon able to pick out songs from ear and memory. At age five, she started taking lessons, and kept on studying classical music until her teens, when she switched to jazz.

Dearie started playing professionally in the late 1940’s, when she moved to New York City and performed with vocal groups such as Alvino Rey's Blue Reys, and Woody Herman's Blue Flames. In 1950, she began her solo career, by pairing piano with voice, and playing in a little club in Greenwich Village. That is where she met Eddie Barclay, who convinced her to come to Paris. Blossom then recorded her first solo album on the Barclay label. She also formed the Blue Stars of France, with whom she gained a Billboard hit with the "Lullaby of Birdland", arranged by Michel Legrand in french. After returning to the U.S., she recorded six albums for Verve Records.

In the 1960s, Blossom recorded an album for Capitol Records entitled "May I Come In", accompanied by an orchestra. She also recorded four albums for Fontana in England. During thoses years, Dearie played a lot in clubs, like the Village Vanguard, where she shared the bill with Miles Davis. In the 1970s, she started performing more in concerts rather than clubs, and even played at Carnegie Hall in 1973.

In 1974, Blossom Dearie became the first woman to own a independent record label in the United States : Daffodil Records. The first album released was “Blossom Dearie Sings” featuring music written entirely by herself. Until her last performance in early 2007, Blossom recorded over a dozen albums and played frequently in clubs in New York and London. She passed away in February of 2009. She was a remarkable jazz pianist, vocalist, and composer.
