I remember seeing Cameron Elise several years ago at an impromptu house jam. There were maybe 8 or 9 musicians of different skill and discipline levels around, and everyone was floating in-between ideas. For the moments that Cameron took the lead, however, ideas seemed to evolve into movements and folks seemed on the same page. In a more abstract way, I feel we are seeing that same process coalesce with her recorded material. What was once raw talent and passion captured on recordings is evolving into focused ideas and execution with the proper amount of flourish to bolster those ideas. If Afortunada is any indication of what her next full-length release will bring, I am definitely interested.
