One set from the fabulous Jim Campilongo Trio. With Chris Morrissey and Josh Dion
Shaping the trio's personal sound with Campilongo is the formidable rhythm section of Josh Dion (d) and Chris Morrissey (b). Dion, the front man of the New York art-funk duo Paris Monster also boasts a long and eclectic list of world class collaborators including Wayne Krantz, Greg Allman, Bill Evans and Warren Haynes. Josh's rare musicianship is as at home painting and pummeling in the trio's iconoclastic rendition of "Manic Depression" as it is crooning their version of the Ray Charles blues "Here Am I".
The Jím Campilongo Trio's joyful abandon is urged onward by its bassist, Chris Morrissey. He is a veteran member of globe trekking jazz outfits such as The Mark Guiliana Jazz Quartet and The Dave King Trucking Company, and has held music directorships with popular artists Sara Bareilles and Trixie Whitley. His own writing earned him the Residency Commission from New York's "Jazz Gallery" in 2015.
The Jim Campilongo Electric Trio 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 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."
