Blossom Dearie - A very special song of the week.

Everything I've got belongs to you - Blossom Dearie.

Oh, how I love this woman. And her jacket in this video.

I've been a fan since my jazz-loving dad introduced me to her music when I was a child.
She was a very talented, smart and funny lady.
She was a New Yorker through and through and musically she was, well, awesome.

Of her songs, this is probably my favourite. I wanted to feature it somehow at our wedding, but as you will hear, the lyrics are a bit too irreverent for that particular occasion!

We went with;
The Beatles - Got to get you into my life ( played at the end of the ceremony),
Ray Charles - Deed I do ( for our wedding dance),
Louis Armstrong - La Vie en Rose ( for the signing of the registry)
and Chet Baker - Somewhere over the Rainbow ( when I walked down the aisle).

Those songs are all about love and romance (and no irreverence!!)

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend! xx
