Look At What A Mess You Made Of Me
1 Look At What A Mess You Made Of Me  

"Look At What A Mess You Made Of Me" is the first single to emerge from the artistic collaboration between French Jazz prodigy Camille Bertault and Grammy and Latin Grammy nominated composer John Finbury. With lyrics by Ned Claflin, Patty Brayden and the composer, this music features Finbury's blend of Jazz and Vaudeville traditions with a nod to the "Roaring 20s", past and present. The song needed a singer who could bring just the right playful approach to interpretation, which led the composer and his producer Emilio D. Miler to reach out to Camille Bertault, who quickly embraced the project. Camille has startled the Jazz world with her vocal prowess and unmatched improvisational skills, as well as her ability to write lyrics to some of the most iconic jazz solos in history. She has released three albums that showcase her interpretative talents with music and lyrics of her own. Given the careful studio protocols in pandemic times, the artists and producers sought a simple instrumentation, so "Look At What A Mess You Made Of Me" became a voice and bass duet. They entrusted the bass chair to Christian McBride, who achieved a stunning balance of brawny playing with a sense of humor.
