This is your chance to catch one of the fast-rising stars in jazz. NPR calls Camille Thurman “a rare jazz double threat.” A vocalist and tenor sax player, she is also a composer and multi-instrumentalist. Her rich saxophone sound has been compared to Joe Henderson and Dexter Gordon, while her vocal approach—including an impressive scatting ability—has been classified alongside those of Ella Fitzgerald and Betty Carter. Jazz legend Al Jarreau says ”I’m scared of this lady’s scatting!” As for her playing, All About Jazz calls her “a first-class saxophonist that blows the proverbial roof off the place.”
