Go Do Be
Originally from Montréal, Canada, vocalist Céline Berman stepped out onto the Charlotte, NC music scene with the launch of her band, Jazztrack, in August 1996. Céline studied with Patty Coker, a prominent improvisation educator in Knoxville, TN. As quoted in the media, Céline's jazz répertoire is sprinkled with 'scat renditions that come from the soul'. Her interpretation of internationally acclaimed jazz favorites attests to her musical versatility. By including songs in various languages, namely French (her native tongue) and Portuguese, Céline provides her audiences with an unsurpassed world-class feel. Strongly influenced by jazz greats such as Ella Fitzgerald and Mel Tormé, her remarkable velvet voice is often reminiscent of the innocence and freshness displayed by such vocalists as Astrud Gilberto or Julie London. The CD was recorded at Reflection Sound Studios in Charlotte, NC, by Grammy©-Nominated Mark Williams, a widely recognized engineer for his years of experience, talent and ability to bring the performer's 'honest' voice clearly forward. Other than playing on jazz stations throughout the USA, her début CD 'GO DO BE' garnered strong notices in Canada, Australia, France and England.
