Rosie Bell links to something I hadn't heard before -- the Bob Dorough-Blossom Dearie version of "Baby It's Cold Outside," surely the creepiest version of that seasonal chestnut ever recorded.
Finally, singer Amy Cervini sent me links to two YouTube videos from a Blossom Dearie tribute gig she did at the Blue Note in December. The (killing) band includes Avishai Cohen, Frank Kimbrough, Dan Loomis, and Matt Wilson. Check out Amy's versions of "A Doodlin' Song" and "Blossom's Blues."
