Blossom Dearie tribute is 'hip' at Merrickville's Jazz Fest (video)

Four years ago, three Ottawa vocalists paid tribute to one of their favourite jazz singers, Blossom Dearie, singing
some of her most famous songs, both ballads and teasing upbeat numbers. Their show at the NAC Fourth Stage was enthusiastically received.

OttawaJazzScene.ca videoed the original concert in 2010. We have combined clips from that show with a recent interview with Oxorn and Campbell, looking back to the first show and forward to its revival. Watch it to get a taste of what you will be able to see and hear on October 19 at Merrickville's Jazz Fest.
