Album Notes
A follow up to his critically acclaimed CD "A Jazz Guitar Christmas," Royce Campbell has produced another collection of Christmas favorites featuring a jazz guitar trio in the cool jazz style. Bob Bowen on bass, and Ron Free on drums.
Royce Campbell has produced a number of CD's which feature him in the company of many of the greats of the jazz guitar, including legendary guitarists Herb Ellis, Tal Farlow, Jimmy Raney, and Cal Collins, Pat Martino, John Abercrombie, Larry Coryell, Dave Stryker and Bucky Pizzarelli. His latest project for Paddlewheel, Project G-5, A Tribute to Joe Pass, includes Charlie Byrd, Gene Bertoncini, Mundel Lowe, and John Pisano.
A Tribute To Henry Mancini, on Episode Records, is one of Royce's personal favorites. This CD was the highest rated jazz guitar CD in the country on the radio airplay charts for four weeks reaching #8 overall and received much critical acclaim. All in all 11 consecutive recordings produced by Royce have made it onto the national radio airplay charts.
Royce has toured in Europe eight times and toured Japan ten times as a soloist. Royce has also performed with many jazz greats such as Mel Torme, James Moody, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn, Jack McDuff, Ray Brown, Dave Brubeck, Joe Williams, Cleo Laine, Eddie Daniels, Eddie Harris, Frank Morgan and Mose Allison.
Royce was featured on the cover of the two main jazz guitar magazines String Jazz and Just Jazz Guitar. He was also featured in profiles in Jazz Times, Down Beat, Guitar Player Magazine, 21st Century Guitar, Japan's Swing Journal and Germany's Akustik Gitarre. It is apparent that more and more people are becoming aware of Royce Campbell's talents (see reviews) as a world class jazz guitar master.
"Trio jazz at it's finest."

Royce Campbell Jazz Guitar Xmas Vol. 2
Terrific CD. The trio on this release plays jazz arrangements of seasonal favorites as well as traditional hymns in a manner that will please jazz devotees while still making the music accessible to those who do not ordinarily listen to this genre of music. I enthusiastically give this compilation five stars out of a possible five. My wife and I will enjoy the renditions on this CD for years to come.
