Camille Bertault: “Pas de Géant”
Until about a week ago I had never heard of Camille before, but because of a live arrangement at my work, I was so lucky to get familiar with her.
This music is alternate and experimental French vocal jazz. I never thought that I was going to like this, but I do - I LOVE it!
Camille is so skilled, and what she can do with her voice is amazing. She is pushing herself to the limit putting every last drop of emotion into every track, which simply takes my breath away. This album is amazing in every single way!
• Bold Woman •
On this Monday I would like to celebrate all of the women I know who have made the clear decision to be themselves.
Whatever that may be.
We should be able to understand each other, as women.
We should be used to supporting each other.
And hang with the men that are confident enough to see how the #sisterhood can only make the world a better place.
Men who respect intellect and talent before physique.
And men you HAVE to start speaking up.
Like stop waiting.
Like really stop, look around and listen.
There is no one one way to be an « entrepreneure » & there is no one way to be a woman.
But always know that you will be questioned.
You will be second guessed.
You will have to work harder &
You will have to walk on the tight rope of improvisation.
I thank Tina from @londonstringgroup for introducing me to the wonderful cellist @gabriellaswallow ... See that is how the #sisterhood works... It was our first time playing together and thank @veuveclicquot_ww for trusting in me, wholeheartedly with the presentation of their #BoldWomanAward
The incredible women, humans I met that night, I am still overjoyed.
Thank you Myriam for insisting - because I said no in the beginning having left my presenting life behind in France - Thank you Olivia for all of the preparation - And thank you Carole and Jean-Marc for making me feel like part of the story... Herstory... Because of women like #VeuveClicquot we can.
My Record Year - Day 321: Mono Monday! I’ve been posting some pretty great stuff all year, but with just a few weeks left, I’m trying to feature LPs of people or groups that are true personal favorites across many genres. Todays fave is one of the most (if not THE most) influential vocal groups ever, the Hi-Lo’s, inspiring acts from Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys to the Manhattan Transfer. Gene Puerling, Bob Strasen, Clark Burroughs and Bob Morse first combined voices in 1953. The group’s name had a double meaning; two were tall (the two Bobs) and two were short; two sang high and two sang lower. Puerling did most of the original vocal arrangements, ensuring that the Hi-Lo’s sounded nothing like any other group at the time. After recording five LPs for Trend and Starlite Records, the group moved over to Columbia in late 1956 after they became regular cast members of the Rosemary Clooney Show. There, they sang spotlight songs (often as part of sketches) and joined Rosie for some of her tunes as well as on their 2nd Columbia LP, “Ring Around Rosie.” In 1958, they joined the Marty Paich Dek-tette for “And All That Jazz,” and it has become a favorite of vocal jazz fans. In 1959, Strasen began to experience problems with his voice, so he stepped away from the group. He was replaced by Don Shelton for the group’s final Columbia LPs. From there, the four signed with Frank Sinatra’s Reprise label and produced two wonderful yet obscure LPs, “The Hi-Lo’s Happen To Folk Songs” and “...Happen to Bossa Nova.” The four had come together with the idea of staying unique and current, so in 1963 they all moved on to other projects. Puerling formed and arranged for another top vocal group (which also included Shelton), the Singers Unlimited. They produced more than a dozen LP from the 1970s thru the mid-1980s. If you love vocal music and amazing harmonies, you need to check out the Hi-Lo’s. #vinyl#vocals#harmony#hilos#vinylcollector#vinyloftheday#recordoftheday#quartet#genepuerling#vinyladdict#vinyljunkie#vocaljazz
