ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CLAUDIA BEECHMAN
Claudia Beechman began singing in coffeehouses in the Philadelphia area at age fifteen, accompanying herself on guitar . After college, she went to Paris, where she studied acting at the Theatre Ecole Tania Balachova and fell in love with French popular music.
She learned the guitar accompaniment to Piaf songs and began singing them in Philadelphia clubs and cafes. She made several television appearances and appeared in a Canadian production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris. Besides her cabaret repertoire, she also developed a concert-lecture performance which bridges French popular and classical songs. She continues to perform at colleges and cabarets, and has produced three records, Parlez-moi d'amour (1994), Souveinrs de Paris (1999), and her most recent CD The Grand Legrand (2003).
Claudia has sung at a variety of theatrical and cabaret venues, includung Odette's in New Hope, Act Two Playhouse, Lincoln Center, and Plays and Players Theater in Philadelphia. A published poet, Claudia recently had a poem dedicated to her late sister, Laurie set to music by composer and pianist Rich Rudin.

Beautiful Renditions of French Standards
This is a lovely cd of Ms. Beechman singing beautiful renditions of French standard classics such as 'La Vie En Rose' and a stunning version of Jacque Brel's 'Ne Me Quitte Pas (Don't Leave Me)' among other gems. Ms. Beechman obviously put a lot of time and affection into this collection of songs. Highly recommended.

Hi Claudia
This is your moher-in-law. I'm visiting my friend Hilda and we just heard your singing.

I'm kvelling...I'm so poud of you ... and Hilda's very impressed with your voice too, both in French and English. What a talent!

Claudia dear, you have no idea how impressed I am with you...you're so talented. We just heard "la Vie En Rose" and you sounded even better than Edith Piaf.

Have a wonderful day.....Lee

I loved it!
What a wonderful album. So refreshing to hear old'e Paris!! I feel the romance from here. We listen to it daily (Glenn Nelson McBride, the composer and I).

I also loved the shipping and the messages from CDBaby. They're so cute.
