Ohio-based jazz vocalist Patricia Berg has spent the last decade performing in some of Dayton's most popular upscale restaurants and jazz venues.

In February 2008, Patricia released Sweet Sorrow, her debut CD, on the local Hipgnosis record label, and will spend 2008 promoting it across the area. Sweet Sorrowassembled a host of the region's top jazz musicians, including Fenton Sparks, Brian Cashwell, Jim Leslie, Jeff Hufnagle, Marc Pequignot, Chris Slone, John Wesley Taylor, Rusty Burge, Tom Downs, Greg Dearth, Jim Masters, Tim Cummiskey, and Patricia's husband, bassist Christian Berg, as well as guest appearances by cellist Peter Thomas and Grammy-nominated saxophonist Greg Abate.

Including five original songs written by Patricia and/or Chris, Sorrow was described by jazz writer Duante Beddingfield in the Dayton City Paper as "a warm, mellow, deeply intimate collection of reflective tunes" with "almost an aching softness...like being wrapped in a cashmere blanket on a cool summer evening."
