Digitally re-mastered collection from the acclaimed Jazz vocalist featuring a pair of her albums on one disc: Once Upon a Summertime (1957) and Give Him the Ooh-La-La (1958). Ray Brown appears on both albums with Herb Ellis and Jo Jones replaced by Mundell Lowe and Ed Thigpen on the 1958 recordings. When Blossom Dearie first emerged as a solo artist, she was already unique in many ways. Straightaway there was that voice - kittenish, intimate, coquettish and understated where so many other Jazz divas were straining to belt out every song. 25 tracks. El. 2009.
