Easy to Love: Camille Thurman + CJO

EASY TO LOVE: Camille Thurman + CJO

On February 26, 2022, it will be EASY TO LOVE and easy to remember the name, Camille Thurman, as she joins your Charleston Jazz Orchestra for the Season 14 opener at the Charleston Music Hall. For Camille Thurman, “the horn is a voice, and the voice is a horn.” Fluid and powerful on the tenor saxophone and highly inventive as a vocalist, her rich sax sounds have 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.

As a composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, educator, she is quickly becoming one of the standard bearers for the art form. Camille Thurman constantly makes a considerable and dynamic contribution to the legacy of jazz while paying tribute to its heroes. You will want to get the best seat in the house to witness the rising jazz talent of Camille Thurman, as she brings her soulful and warm sound to Charleston for an evening of beautiful jazz in EASY TO LOVE: Camille Thurman + CJO!

Camille Thurman (By Gulnara Khamatova)About Camille Thurman

In a few short years, Thurman has shared stages with such jazz and R&B luminaries as George Coleman, Roy Haynes, Dianne Reeves, Wynton Marsalis, The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Kenny Barron, Buster Williams, Charles Tolliver, Terri Lyne Carrington, Jon Hendricks, Janelle Monáe, Alicia Keys, Lalah Hathaway, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu among others.

Thurman was the first woman in 30 years to tour and perform full time, internationally with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra as a saxophonist/woodwind doubler (2018-2020). Also, Thurman leads her band, The Camille Thurman Quartet, which has toured and performed at numerous notable concert venues and jazz festivals around the world. Currently, she is a collaborative  featured artist with the Darrell Green Trio.

Thurman was chosen by the U.S. State Department under the Fulbright Scholarship grant to perform in Paraguay and Nicaragua with her band. She and Darrell Green were selected by American Music Abroad and the U.S. State Department to tour and perform in various African countries including Cameroon, Mozambique, Nigeria, Senegal and Mauritania. In May of 2020, Camille created and founded “The Haven Hang: Young Lioness Musician A&A/Virtual Mentorship Series.” The Haven Hang – a virtual mentorship series for young women musicians, with an initiative to mentor, share advice and support young women pursuing careers in music and the performing arts.
