Overview

Watch and listen as Camille Thurman joins forces with The Darrell Green Trio and jazz legend Wynton Marsalis to kick off the 2019 Charlotte Jazz Festival with an unforgettable night of entertainment in The Jazz Garden Tent at Romare Bearden Park!

Acclaimed  by  Downbeat  Magazine  as  a  "rising  star"  singer  with  “soulful  inflection  and  remarkable,  Fitzgerald-esque  scat  prowess”  and  hailed  by All  About  Jazz  as  a  “first  class  saxophonist  that  blows  the  proverbial  roof  of  the  place”,  Camille  Thurman  has  been  amazing  audiences  throughout  the  world  with  her  impeccable  sound,  remarkable  vocal  virtuosity  and  captivating  artistry.  Many  have  praised  her  vocal  abilities  to  the  likeness  of  Ella  Fitzgerald  and  Betty  Carter.  Her  lush,  rich  &  warm  sound  on  the  tenor  saxophone  has  led  others  to  compare  her  to  tenor  greats  Joe  Henderson  and  Dexter  Gordon.

Over  a  career  that  has  spanned  more  than  two  decades  Oakland,  California  native  Darrell  Green  has  become  a  master  drummer  and  prolific  sideman,  sharing  stages  with  leading  jazz  artists;  from  Blue  Note  vibraphonist  Stefon  Harris  to  saxophonist  Red  Holloway.  Though  jazz  is  his  primary  focus,  Green  is  conversant  in  every  genre  from  straight-ahead  jazz  to  Latin  and  West  African  music.
