"Cameron Ross"


It's a Saturday afternoon and thirty one degrees Celsius in Toronto. Here I am chillaxing at home and listening to New Perspective, the new CD from saxophonist Cameron Ross.
It is reminiscent of being at a spa getting one those great massages that works the knots out and alleviates the stress, causing you to float off on a cloud of relaxation. Track number eight titled Free Your Mind does just that. Whatever I was thinking about disappeared as the melody took full control, captured my thoughts and drew me fully into the moment, and got me snapping my fingers and nodding my head to the beat.

As I listen I had the overwhelming urge to call up a few friends and invite them over, pop open a bottle of chardonnay, put our feet up (painted toenails and all) and sink into the lush rhythms emanating from my stereo. What a perfect way to spend a summer day!

I was drawn in from the very first track. Its opening notes reminded me of Stevie Wonder's Superstition, although that's where the resemblance ends. It's a nice groove that you can bop your head to while driving on the highway. The smoothest groove on the CD for me is On The Ocean. The mellow vocals in the background are soothing to say the least, and inspiring. It's a song about never giving up on your dreams but holding on to them until you see them manifest.

The CD just seems to take on a new persona once you hit track three, Love Never Fails. I use the word persona 'cause there is life in this thing. It refreshes, revives, heals, soothes, comforts; like the Holy Spirit, and where the Spirit is there is life. It's a beautiful interpretation of first Corinthians thirteen, and my favourite track on the album.

The CD is a great mix of everything that can touch a wide audience. From the beginning to the last track – the hauntingly melancholy Beautiful, the CD is a work of art. It's smooth, spiritual, jazzy and funky with a little reggae twist added. Nice! It is great to see that Cameron was unafraid to experiment with different genres of music to demonstrate his musical proficiency.

A few months ago I did not know Cameron Ross or his music. Today I am comfortable saying that New Perspective is going to be in my playlist for a long time and I eagerly look forward to future recordings of this talented musician.

Bio


Cameron, a native of Osceola, AR, comes from a heritage deeply rooted in God and music. As a child, he always knew that he had a place in music, but didn't know exactly where. That all changed when he entered the 6th grade. Determined to play the drums, he signed up for middle school band. However, his parents told him that he had to play saxophone. "I didn't want to play it because it had too many buttons." After being tired of always getting last chair in band class, he decided to take his sax home and actually practice it. This resulted in him getting first chair and he has been soaring since.

Currently, Cameron is staying busy by touring and promoting the new cd project.. The title of the project is "New Perspective" It is a collection of original as well as covered material that gives the listener an idea of who Cameron the musician is.

Some of the titles include: I'm A Winner, Free Your Mind, All I Want Is You, On the Ocean, and many more.

These songs and others takes the listener on a journey with the purpose of bringing inspiration to the listener. The project is now available at www.cameronrossmusic.com, Itunes, Amazon, and Rhapsody.
