CD Reviews

Should have been called "The Other Side of Jim Campilongo"
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What a change from his first two albums. Well, there may have been a hint on the others. Aptly titled, right on the money. Dark country meets jazz somewhere in France and slow at that. I don't think there is one song over 100 beats per minute. Only one song with Joe Goldmark on steel. Replaced with B-3 organ and accordian. Still, it's a great CD. I really like it. But, very different from the first two. Worth a listen."
Someplace between light and dark there is this. Amazing.

"A departure from previous recordings, 'Table for One' is more intense in mood and feel. The all-instrumental record has scaled back the trademark pedal steel giving way to healthy portions of organ and accordion - did I say accordion? Yeah, and it's hip. This album is very slow and deliberate in it's story telling, taking time to explore each melody fully, rushing past nothing while retaining a smooth even flow. Jim's playing is impeccable and the tonal voices he creates are breathtaking (Is the guitar weeping on Fiesty's Ride?). This is a wonderfully composed collection of introspective, intense and emotional pieces and some of Jim's finest song writing yet.Jim's unique style and vibe on 'Table for One' is sweet as a first kiss and as heart breaking as the day you came home to find her toothbrush gone. This is a great buy."

"What a great CD. As others have described, this a very cinematic, evocative CD. It has fantastic playing on it, but it's more about the compositions and atmosphere than "how the F*&^ did he do that." I have a couple of other Campilongo CDs and I like this one by far the best. The others have much more quirky playing and great licks to learn, but this one is miles beyond the others in terms of cohesiveness. I owned this for a bunch of years and still play it regularly. You can hear a lot of Bill Frisell influence here which is all to the good in my opinion. There's also one solo he plays that stands out where he combines the spirit of Jerry Garcia, Roy Buchannon and Frisell into a fantastic amalgam that pays tribute while being more succinct than the influences he draws from (other than Frisell who can be very succinct). Absolutely great CD."
