Campise is a great musician
K. Swanson | Austin, TX United States | 10/03/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)
This is one of many solid outings from Texas jazzman Campise.
Equally at home on alto, tenor, soprano, flute, and bass flute (how many reedmen can say that?), Tony is a truly fine player with a mellifluous style and chops to spare. He moves from straight-up Bird-style blowing to lush ballads in a flash, and plays everything with soul. He is also a wonderfully kind and funny guy.
Tony plays a monthly gig here in Austin at our little jazz hole, the Elephant Room. If you get a chance, check him out. His playing has only improved with age, and he has a relaxed humor onstage that makes his gigs a true delight.
Campise is one of the most musical musicians in Austin, and that's mighty fine indeed.
Long may he wail."
