“First class saxophonist that blows the proverbial roof of the place.”—All About Jazz
On the saxophone, she earns comparisons to Joe Henderson and Dexter Gordon. As a vocalist, she’s likened to Ella Fitzgerald and Betty Carter. And as a composer, she’s collaborated with Wynton Marsalis, Dianne Reeves, Alicia Keys, and other giants of jazz. “Rising star” (DownBeat) Camille Thurman is a true triple threat. Her remarkable virtuosity informs each of her endeavors with equal force, unmistakably notable in her ebullient, wild scat singing. Thurman performs at the Flynn with the Darrell Green, a highly in-demand drummer whose style is rooted in modern post-bop while retaining elements of his gospel and classical lineage.
