New Generation Jazz presents
 
Camilla George Quartet
 
Camilla George (tenor sax)
Sarah Tandy (piano)
Danial Casimir (bass)
Femi Coleoso (drums)


In January 2017, Camilla George (Jazz Jamaica, Venus Warriors) launched her own long-awaited debut album, Isang, on the Ubuntu Music label; the album is a blend of African, Caibbean and modern jazz influences.  Camilla grew up listening to Fela Kuti alongside Jackie McLean and Charlie Parker.  Now a graduate from Trinity College of Music, she has studied with many jazz greats including Jean Toussaint, Courtney Pine, Tony Kofi, Christian Brewer, Julian Siegel and Martin Speake.  Formed in 2014, the CGQ has a fresh modern edge whilst paying homage to the tradition, with a bit of calypso thrown into the mix.  The band is inspired by artists such as Kenny Kirkland, Wynton Marsalis, Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts and Kenny Garrett. Their EP Lunacity was acclaimed by fans, critics and musicians alike.
