The Green Kingdom Jim's music has such a unique and otherworldly vibe. His combination of jazz, rock and country equates to something that isn't quite at home in any of the genres, yet remains completely listenable. Favorite track: Maceo.

about

UNCUT Magazine UK May 2010

"...the result is a gorgeous, mostly instrumental album on which he coaxes diverse moods from his telecaster..." "the highlight is a dissolute rendering of "When You Wish Upon a Star", but it's run close by two vocal efforts in which Leah Siegel drags the Stones "No Expectations" and the Stooges "No Fun" up a dark alley and hypnotizes them..."


JAZZTIMES - April 2010

"... you've got the makings of a very twisted guitar hero who deserves worshipping. Clever, crafty, quirky and cool.

Time Out NYC - February 2010
His prodigious talent is always evident as the band burns through tunes crammed with rock, jazz and country flourishes. But even a casual observer can see that everything Campilongo plays is in service to his songwriting.

Mix Magazine - March 2010
From his almost Hendrix-like aggression on the opener, “Backburner,” to the airy “Blues for Roy,” to the bittersweet solo performance of “When You Wish Upon a Star” that closes the album, the tunes are unified by Campilongo's musical soul and character.

Ink KC - Feburary 2010
Orange is a record that will have guitar geeks' jaws on the floor, but it also presents enough moments of absolute beauty that listeners with no particular interest in the instrument itself will find plenty to love.

JAMBASE
"Simply stunning - an album instrumental music fans will likely quickly salute as a classic...""..... Orange bursts with succulent playing and juicy compositions, an ear-snagging winner in every regard. (DC)

CANADIAN AUDIOPHILE
"....With Orange, new ground is forged yet again and Campilongo’s forward momentum is unstoppable. Nomadic and adventurous, Campilongo’s playing belongs everywhere and nowhere all at once. Trying to peg him in a genre is a little like trying to catch a wild rabbit with your bare hands – if you do actually pull it off, you kinda feel bad about it and just let the little fucker go....."

VINTAGE GUITAR
"...Jim Campilongo's latest record is one of those great guitar discs that serves up new treats every time you listen..."

PREMIER GUITAR
"his latest masterpeice will be released in Feb 2010....his playing style is more than unique, revealing a range that extends from seductive country swing to atmospheric jazz and well beyond..."

DIRECT CURRENT MUSIC
"....Orange is yet another collection of remarkable fret work from Campilongo, an astonishingly diverse assortment of instrumentals...."

FRETBASE
“Orange” is a remarkable collection of mostly instrumental tracks that feature the wide range of mind-bending guitar playing. Jim Campilongo mixes it up, changing styles and feel from to track to track giving a great variety

URBAN SEMIOTIC
".....Our favorite Mad Telecaster SuperGenius, Jim Campilongo, has a brand new album called "Orange" that sets a broad, new, standard for experimentation in melody and intention...."

ADK TELESOUND
".....I purchased it and let me tell you Jim does not dissapoint! From the gritty tone of Backburner to the haunting melody of Chelsea Bridge Jim has created a masterpiece! I highly recommend this album!...."

about

Jim Campilongo Brooklyn, New York

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
"Jim Campilongo holds court. American music is a melting pot of influences, but few guitarists capture the nuances as well as Campilongo does."
