"This man (Chuck) is the Jimi Hendrix and the Django Reinhardt of the steel guitar..." - REAL BLUES
Pedal steel guitarist Chuck Campbell and his lap steel-playing brother Darick Campbell are two of the finest in the gospel and steel guitar tradition.
Several jazz critics have claimed that listening to tenor saxman
Eric Alexander unfettered and at length, is one of the greatest
treats in jazz. This imposing improviser performs with his
mentor, the veteran pianist Harold Mabern and is joined by
John Webber on bass, and Joe Farnworth on drums.
