At the Jazz Brunch, Delfin will accompany Maynard on Blossom's last apartment piano, which she discovered and purchased on Ebay after Dearie bequeathed it to the Manhattan Association of Cabarets. Maynard interprets "The First Blossom Dearie Songbook", containing songs written for and by Dearie in collaboration with Johnny Mercer, Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg and Mahriah Blackwolf, arrangements by Mike Renzi. Maynard is now representing the posthumously published "Blossom Dearie Songbook" for Hal Leonard Music.

The show had its theatrical debut at NYC's United Solo Theater Festival on Theatre Row , has played The Cornelia Street Cafe in Greenwich Village and The Laurie Beechman Theater and Metropolitan Room in NYC following its Los Angeles premiere Upstairs at Vitello's Red Carpet Jazz, she played Sterling's Upstairs at the Federal Bar in North Hollywood.

Maynard styles her show as a mid-Century modern NYC supper club act ala 1962. Known throughout the world as "a musician's musician," Dearie was a unique and inimitable singer; sophisticated and genuinely funny, whose legacy of material remains fresh, hip, smart and sassy.
