camille_thurman_200There will be quite a show, this Saturday, July 5th, two amazing sets you’d be crazy to miss!
Camille Thurman, multi-talented saxophonist, flutist, vocalist, composer and educator is a young musician emerging on the horizon, acquiring an impressive list of accomplishments that extend well beyond her years. Her lush, velvety, rich & warm sound on the tenor saxophone has eluded others to compare her sound to the likeness of tenor greats Gene Ammons and Dexter Gordon to name a few. Camille’s ability to sing 4 octaves and perform vocalese, has given her the capability to influence audiences with melodies reminiscent to the sounds of Minnie Riperton, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan. Her gift of taking the sounds evocative of yesteryear’s legends and creatively pair them with the nuances, edge and freshness of today’s music, has not only expanded the possibilities of jazz in the upcoming generation but also gained her the respect of audiences in Israel, Peru, and Switzerland among other countries spanning the globe.

An accomplished performer and composer in her own right, Camille has performed with notable Jazz and R&B icons Dr. Billy Taylor, Chaka Khan, Benny Golson, George Coleman, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Terri Lyne Carrington, Stephanie Mills, Russell Malone, Nicholas Payton, George Benson, Yolanda Adams, Bebe Winans, Charli Persip, Valery Ponomarev, Lew Tabackin, Alicia Keys, India Arie, Kenny Latimore, Dave Valentine , Anthony Hamilton, Eric Benet, Brandy, SWV, Ciara, Missy Elliot and many others. Camille leads her own quartet, which has performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, the International Women in Jazz Festival, the Super Jazz Ashdod Israel Festival, The Jazz Gallery and many other prominent jazz venues and festivals around the world.

Join us on this very special evening and experience the wonder of Ms. Thurman’s amazing talent. See you uptown at Ginny’s!
