A Big Band Christmas Season!


Cam's Holiday Big Band favorites (click on the date to see the video):

November 27


This Holiday season will be very different for many and the Cameron Shave Jazz Orchestra’s 16-19 musicians have been busy playing and recording Holiday Big Band favorites for the public to view for free. The first video will be available on YouTube on the day after Thanksgiving, November 27th, and the second video will be released on Tuesday, December 1st. A new video be will released every December Sunday following with special videos for Christmas Eve and a Big Band Extravaganza for Christmas Day. If you go onto CameronShave.com, you will find a pop-up tab with links to all of the released videos. All the links will be posted below as they are released as well.


Cameron has transcribed and prepared all of the music, sent each part to each musician and has collected the videos back to place the ensemble together. The band is hoping to bring joy to the community with their music through this holiday season. They wil also be sharing this link with assisted living facilities around the country. Please consider tuning in to support these fine young players.


CSCC’s own Cameron Shave is a 17-year-old junior in high school. His big band is comprised of high school and college musicians. Many of these young musicians began playing with Cam when they were much younger — now many of them are all over the country studying at music colleges, but thanks to technology can still play together.


Cam has been working around the clock since September on transcribing some incredible big band charts that bands cannot play because the music is not put out for sale. These are mostly secular big band charts involving a jazz vocalist or two on several. After transcribing and laying out the parts for his players, he creates audio backtracks for each of the 17-18 parts on each song, emails them out to each player, then receives each player's recording back to piece together for the whole ensemble's finished audio and video. He and his bandmembers do this because they love these familiar Christmas songs but also want to spread cheer during this unusual holiday season to others through music.
