Hi Marc,

Many thanks for this very nice piece on Blossom (thanks to David Amram). In the sixties I used to see her at the Top of the Gate, where there was no gate! You could sit for hours, no minimum. And for her, I sat. What a charmer and gem we have lost.

P.S. I also recall seeing David Amram in Tomkins Square Park playing, among other things, a Clarke flute (which became my constant instrument) and his head!

All best,

Peter Gerler
Boston, MA
