Cameron Pierre at the Be-Bop Club Bristol 21st November

cameronpierre_smallI’ve pinched this little photo from Off Minor, the musings of another jazz geek! who I noticed had written about pretty much the same line up a while back and my view of the band was very similar: Cameron, Anders Olinder on organ and Ian Matthews (of rock band Kasabian) on drums. Both Anders and Ian are Bristol residents so it was a bit of an home town gig. And a slightly strange one. Cameron’s approach is straight forward, groovy and engaging. The band just seemed a little unrehaearsed – Cameron forgot a couple of tunes halfway through, it took Anders and and Ian a whil lock on others. But when it all clicked there was real magic in the formula and some hilarious moments. Like when having given Ian a drum solo which turned into a real work out, Cameron told a story about a visiting American artist reminding the drummer about whose gig it was…. only kiddng Ian!!
