Camilla George Quartet
LONDON Spice of Life
6 Moor Street
Alto Saxophonist Camilla George has made a big impact in the past year, leading a terrific young quartet that jumps straight from the jazz tradition with an added calypso twist.
Young alto saxophonist who has featured with Jazz Jamaica and Courtney Pine's Venus Warriors. She presents her modern edged quartet comprising some of London's finest young players:
SARAH TANDY piano
DANIEL CASIMIR bass
EMI KOLEOSO drums
who have performed individually with the likes of Gilad Atzmon, Clark Tracey, Ezra Collective and Tomorrows Warriors. Though inspired by contemporary artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Garrett, Jeff 'Tain' Watts and Kenny Kirkland, the quartet pays homage to the jazz tradition, with a bit of calypso thrown into the mix.
'Thoroughly enjoyable' Courtney Pine
