Jim Campilongo Trio w/ Chris Morrissey & Josh Dion:
The prolific Bammie-winner Campilongo has been a formidable presence as a guest on dozens of recordings by other artists as well, including a contribution to Cake’s million-selling Prolonging the Magic to (most recently) providing lead guitar for Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson and the Little Willies, Campilongo’s band with Norah Jones. He's performed or recorded alongside JJ Cale, Nels Cline, Pete Townsend, Bright Eyes, Burning Spear, Gillian Welch & David Rawlings and Peter Rowan to name a few.
Campilongo also had repeat appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Later . . . with Jools Holland (BBC), Abbey Road Sessions (BBC), and has been interviewed on many major radio shows.
Additionally, Campilongo is a published guitar teacher and contributing editor for Guitar Player Magazine. Campilongo's TrueFire instructional video "Sonic Tele" continues to be a best seller along with his popular, homespun "Lessons By Mail", offered on jimcampilongo.com. Campilongo's virtuosity and originality has inspired a generation of guitar players. His songwriting uses a palette of the best in Blues, Country, Jazz and Rock with a sensitivity and wit that has also earned him the broad fan base most instrumental guitarists never enjoy.
In 2013, Fender Guitars bestowed Jim the honor of the Campilongo Signature Telecaster, a high quality instrument made by Fender's elite Custom Shop. Campilongo is also a featured endorser of D'Addario string company, Celestion speakers and Lava cables.
The Jim Campilongo Electric Trio have perform every Monday at NYC's Rockwood Music Hall, which Time Out New York recommended as "one of the city's strongest", touting "Monday night means Jim Campilongo."
THE NEW YORKER (2014)
"There it was again: the stinging treble, the spooky overtones, the strings snapping and booming under his hands the sound of a Tele being played as skillfully and exuberantly as it can be played it sounded like nothing and nobody else sounded like Jim Campilongo."
TIMEOUT NEW YORK
"New York has no shortage of guitar heroes but few cover as many bases as Jim Campilongo reveals a range that extends from seductive country-swing to atmospheric jazz and well beyond."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
"Through the lean ropy sound of his Fender Telecaster, Mr. Campilongo connects American styles (Blues, Rock, Country, Jazz, R&B) in a sly knowing way."
THE NEW YORKER (2011)
"Jim Campilongo holds court. American music is a melting pot of influences, but few guitarists capture the nuances as well as Campilongo does."
"Campilongo is one of those New York secrets. A master of the electric guitar, he weaves in spaghetti western picks, blues chords and jazz refs into his haunting tunes, a combo of originals and covers."
NYC VILLAGE VOICE
"An engaging improviser whose interest in entertainment is equal to his interest in art. His supple moves can keep an audience enthralled - meaning their asses wiggle and their minds jiggle."
"You've got the makings of a very twisted guitar hero who deserves worshipping. Clever, crafty, quirky and cool."
