JJ Obit: Blossom Dearie (7 Feb 2009, age 82) (32) RE: Obit: Blossom Dearie (7 Feb 2009, age 82) 14 Feb 09


It should be pointed out that "My Attorney Bernie," like a number of Ms. Dearie's signature numbers, was written by Dave Frishberg.

Also, the Times ran this correction to her obit on 12 Feb:
An obituary on Monday about the singer Blossom Dearie, using information from a relative and reference works, misstated the date she was born and thus her age and her full name. She was born on April 28, 1924, not on April 29, 1926, and was 84, not 82. (The headline also misstated her age.) Her full name was Blossom Margrete Dearie, not Marguerite Blossom Dearie.
