"Pierre’s powerful playing deserves centre stage."

Mail on Sunday

"...resolutely his own man, drawing in references to Africa, his homeland Dominica and the British scene."

Jazz Review

"Pierre lays down great slabs of chunky comping, pleasing riffs and fleet solos with consummate ease and great taste – a fine album by an artist at the top of his game."

Jazzwise

"...his lightning-fast single-note runs given breathing space by more measured, Montgomery-esque twin-octave passages."

Then came the slow discovery of George Benson and Charlie Christian, and through them, Wes Montgomery, Miles Davis and Charlie Parker. Since then Cameron has gone on to work with a who's who of musicians including Courtney Pine, Pee Wee Ellis, Orphy Robinson, Alex Wilson, Jazz Jamaica, Omar Puente, Junior Walker, Joe Cocker.
