Blossom Dearie - sweet voiced, excellent pianist - overlooked because of the other extraordinary talent of the time - Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O'Day - she was, however, a one-of-a-kind. Her "Someone To Watch Over Me" is timeless.

So Sad

I used to listened to the hell out of some of his stuff - Motel Shot w/ Duane Allman, as well as that killer song from Duane's anthology, "Out On the Open Road." I loved the song "I Don't Want To Discuss It" first on "History of Eric Clapton" which lead me to Delaney and Bonnie & Friends" with EC - what great music. Thanks, Delaney Bramlett.

Hang in there, Caroline - Cubbies'll win in '09 and that should help ease the pain.

Sorry Stuman. My condolences to Eddie's family: my mom died from bone cancer, and, yes, it is painful. Grateful he didn't have to suffer too long.
