Album Notes
This is Celeste's first CD recorded live in a studio in 1995 with Majolein Keppen (Flute player) whom she met when she sat in to play after a brief introduction from a mutual friend. Majolein lived and lives in Holland. Celeste has joined her several times in Holland to play Jazz Festivals.

Celeste has been playing piano since she was 8 years old. She took classical piano lessons for 10 years, but was interested in jazz and pop music, developing her own “left-hand bass” style. There also were major artistic influences in Celeste’s life. Her mother was an Artist and played piano by ear. Her Grandfather was a clothing designer and part time musician.

Well the limelight has been no stranger to her. Although not majoring in Music in College she continued to play piano at local restaurants. At the age of 24, Celeste and her brother Ken had an instrumental band together. Ken suggested that Celeste should try to sing a few tunes. Well the only tunes she knew words to were “The Girl From Ipanema”, “Blue Moon” and only partially knew the words to “Misty”. So those are the songs that started it all. Wow she discovered she had a voice. As a young child Celeste used to imitate cartoons, sound effects, and other various noises. One day rehearsing with her brother she made one of her famous trumpet noises on the mike. Ken flipped out and said” lets make it a part of the act”.

Over the years Celeste became well known for her band (The Celeste Trio) in the New York metropolitan Tri-state area playing many Weddings, Hotels, Civic functions and Clubs.

In the early 90’s Ken moved to Florida. Celeste started playing solo in Manhattan. Celeste never took any voice training of any kind, and her voice seems to become more rich year after year. She is as comfortable behind the microphone and with her audience as any performer you have ever seen. Ease and fun is what it is all about with Celeste. Her varied styles make it easy for her to put the flavor of various types of music across to her audience; Country music sounds like country. Swing really swings. You never get tired of her voice. It seems to sit in a register that is easy on the ear, yet compelling and captivating.

Moments In Time & All That Jazz
Standards. They are the things we live by, love by and listen to... and when Celeste plays them them you'll know why we go back to them time after time. In this collection she combines her enormous vocal and instrumental talents with the sweet and sassy sounds of a flute, flawlessly delivered by Marjolein, a jazz flautist from the fabled land of tulips, Holland. Surprised? Don't be...Together they offer up standards old and new and give each song a fresh face and vibrant sound. This is a songfest for the heart and the ears but most of all...it speaks to the soul of the music. Celeste as always is amazing in both her playing and vocalizations. Her voice, like fine wine, has simply developed richer and broader tones through the years. I cannot think of a better musical duo than these two fine artists.

Great music from start to finish!
Awesome vocals and precise instrumentation... an album that revives jazz music's greatest standards in top style by two world class artists.
