What to expect
"You're hard-pressed to find rising talents more exciting than Camille Thurman." – The New York Times
The sky’s the limit for the multi-talented Camille Thurman. An award-winning composer and arranger, formidable saxophonist, jaw-dropping vocalist, and trusted bandleader, Thurman would still be making the “rising star” lists even if she focused on just one of her musical gifts. Thankfully, she’s instead rapidly developing every aspect of her artistry. For the past several years Thurman has been a popular headliner at Dizzy’s Club and a regular presence with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, and this performance will be her anticipated debut as an Appel Room headliner.
For the occasion, Thurman has developed a new program of reimagined Burt Bacharach hits. A genre-spanning artist himself, Bacharach was influenced at a young age by jazz icons Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie before becoming one of the most successful songwriters of all time. Over the course of his 60-plus year career, Bacharach has released nine No. 1 hit songs and nearly 50 top-ten hits, blending jazz, bossa nova, soul, and pop styles into a distinctive and enduring new sound.
