John Cameron is truly one of the greatest and most
recognisable British arrangers of the 60s and 70s. He came
out of the British jazz scene, playing live as a teenager with
the likes of Dick Heckstall-Smith. Moving to London, his
first arrangement job was Donovan's 'Sunshine Superman'
- Cameron came up with a unique jazz-folk single with
proto-psychedelic leanings that went to #1 in America and
made him an in-demand arranger overnight. The Donovan
connection (Cameron arranged virtually all of his 60s
recordings) led to work based around woodwind for
Fran oise Hardy and Julie Felix, but he was happier
working with a full, funky brass section - in the 70s this led
to classic hits with CCS, Hot Chocolate and Heatwave, as
well as some of the most influential and heavily sampled
KPM library recordings.
