"Bird Amongst the Blossom-a tribute to the First Blossom Dearie Songbook. "
Singer Jaye Maynard pays homage to (but doesn't try to imitate) the wised-up jazz-babydoll stylings of the late Blossom Dearie (whom she met in '93 at SF's The Great American Music Hall), with Nick Fryman as music director.
Chris Conner plays bass as Maynard interprets “Blossom Dearie’s First Songbook” containing songs written exclusively for or by Dearie in collaboration; Bob Dorough, Johnny Mercer, and Dave Frishberg and Marin County's: Mahriah Blackwolf.
Dearie was a unique and inimitable singer whose legacy of material is fresh, hip, smart, and sassy. Maynard styles her show in a mid-Century modern cabaret to inform and entertain.
