Camilla is one many quality musicians that graduated through Trinity College Of Music, which we are able to enjoy their regular performances at various venues at the moment on the British jazz scene.  When Camilla George Quartet was formed in 2014 it has a modern edge whilst paying homage to the jazz tradition, with a bit of calypo thrown into the mix.  They was received well by the Supa Fine Radio http://csfr.playtheradio.com/ (online station) listeners as well by her fans and musicians alike.  Camilla George Quartet got to perform their music at venues throughout the UK such as Derry Jazz Festival, Ealing Jazz Festival, The Vortex Jazz n the Round, Jazz Re:freshed, Ray’s Jazz and The Spice of Life.
