No one else could sound like Blossom Dearie, and the three vocalists who graced the NAC Fourth Stage on Saturday March 20 wisely didn't try. Instead, Karen Oxorn, Caroline Gibson, and Marcie Campbell celebrated Blossom's style and her material, singing together and individually. The songs, ranging from standards to Dave Frishberg satires, were well-received by the almost-full house. The last song featured a surprise: Brian Browne sitting in on piano, as Gibson gave a bravura performance of the risque lyrics in Blossom's Blues.
