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.
An accomplished performer and composer, Camille has worked with notable Jazz and R&B icons such as George Coleman, Roy Haynes, Dianne Reeves, Wynton Marsalis & the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Terri Lyne Carrington, Jon Hendricks, Pattie LaBelle, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Louis Hayes, Russell Malone, Nicholas Payton, Jacky Terrasson, Alicia Keys, Lalah Hathaway, Jill Scott and Erykah Badu among others.

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.
He developed a style rooted in modern post-bop, but retains elements of his gospel and classical lineage. As a soloist, Green is known for his effortless, masterful technique and captivating rhythms that bring the music to life, taking audiences on a spiritual journey.
In 1997 Green landed a scholarship to attend California Institute of the Arts, where he began a comprehensive study of Jazz and West African performance. After returning to the Bay Area to work with the dynamic Miss Faye Carol, he moved to New York and began working with trumpeter David Weiss, saxophonists Antoine Roney, Sherman Irby, and the Myron Waldon/Darren Barrett Quartet. Shortly thereafter he became a sought- after musician for both session work and live performances.
Green currently works with his trio and quartet which has performed all over the world. He currently tours with Cassandra Wilson, Pharoah Sanders, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Antoine Roney, Charles Toliver, Sherman Irby, Steve Turre, Wallace Roney, Faye Carol, Amina Figarova, The Black Arts Collective, and Jeremy Pelt. He is one of the most in-demand drummers in New York, Europe, and Japan.
