    At the last moment, I realized my pop song arrangement lacks a fun sax solo. Cameron responded super fast and delivered a fun, energetic solo and fills. Great musical feel and phrasing! Clear communication. Thank you, Cameron!

    Cameron was excellent. He recorded a tenor sax solo for me that was exactly what I was looking for. His playing was tasteful and the sax was recorded perfectly. He was prompt and professional the entire way. Highly recommended!

    Cameron worked and played on a jazzy soul song, and he delivered a sax part that matched the tones of the song and was very willing to experiment with revisions. Definitely recommend him.

    Cameron is an amazingly talented saxophone player and overall musician. He is great at both writing original parts as well as taking direction for parts. He has an incredible ear for music and is able to work very quickly at the highest level of quality in playing, tonality, writing, recording, and overall performance. He also can play a vast variety of different genres and styles. On top of all of this, he is very easy to work with and overall very cool and easygoing guy. I highly recommend to anybody looking for saxophone on their tracks!

Interview with Cameron Black

  1. Q: How would you describe your style?

  2. A: My style is a blend of rock, funk, and bossa nova style jazz. Since saxophone spans such a wide variety of genres, my influences as a teenager were all over the place, but my idols included Sam Butera, Sonny Rollins, and Stan Getz. I'd like to think my sound is a mixture between all three.

  3. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  4. A: Don't be afraid to overshare references or ask for revisions! I love playing and part of working together online means communicating exactly what you're looking for.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: I work with any genre, but I've mainly been seeing rock/electronic/funk sax making a resurgence. I love playing on any song, especially, rock, bossa nova, or blues-oriented.

  7. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  8. A: My ability to communicate, both musically and verbally. I want to know exactly what you're looking for, and I can adapt very well to a song's particular "voice" and convey emotion very well with the instrument.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: I bring over two decades of experience, including performing on hundreds of tracks and stages across the US and abroad. With that experience comes the more important skill of knowing exactly when to, and when not to, play. The saxophone is a unique instrument, and knowing how to use it correctly can make or break a song.

  11. Q: What's your typical work process?

  12. A: Typically, I receive a track from a client who will explain what's missing (a horn melody, a solo, etc.). Sometimes people will include a reference as far as the attitude or emotion they'd like me to convey, and if that is included I will listen to that after listening to their track. Once I understand what the client is looking for, I'll play multiple takes in my studio, then send to the client for confirmation. If they want something tweaked, I offer unlimited revisions until they are happy.

  13. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  14. A: I'm currently using Logic Pro and recording through an Apogee Duet. Tenor, Alto, and Soprano saxophones are available.

  15. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  16. A: I play saxophone on tracks spanning any and every genre. Whether it's a solo, a melody, or harmonies throughout a song, I work with artists to bring live sax to their tracks.
