“Isang” is the début leadership album by the young London based alto saxophonist and composer Camilla George. Born in Nigeria George studied at Trinity College of Music and has also been part of the Tomorrow’s Warriors programme. Her tutors have included fellow saxophonists Jean Toussaint, Tony Kofi, Julian Siegel and Martin Speake and “Isang” features liner notes by Jason Yarde, another champion of George and her music.
Besides her illustrious mentors George also cites alto sax giants Charlie Parker and Cannonball Adderley as significant influences, but even more important to her are Sonny Stitt and Jackie McLean with George naming Kenny Garrett as a more contemporary touchstone.
As a performer George has been part of the Nu Civilisation Orchestra, Jazz Jamaica and Courtney Pine’s Venus Warriors project. In 2014 she formed her own quartet, the members coming together through encounters on the Jazz Warriors scheme and at the late night jams at Ronnie Scott’s. Joining George are pianist Sarah Tandy, bassist Daniel Casimir and drummer Femi Koleoso, the latter perhaps best known as a member of rising stars Ezra Collective. “Isang” also features a guest appearance by George’s long time friend, vocalist Zara McFarlane.
“Isang”, meaning “voyage”, takes its title from the Efik language of South East Nigeria and the album packaging includes a quote from the author Ben Okri - “Who can dream a good road and then travel on it”.
