...It is the provenance of a precious few who can so beautifully mine the harmonic depth of a Telecaster with the grace and fluid fantasy of Jim Campilongo. Orange offers another vivid glimpse into the mind of an artist who paints masterpieces with the guitar...”
–The ToneQuest Report

Campilongo (Norah Jones, Cake, The Little Willies, Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson) is joined by drummer Tony Mason (Bo Diddley, Steve Cropper, Charlie Hunter) and bassist Stephan Crump (Jen Chapin, Bruce Springsteen, Vijay Iyer) who lay down the deep groove developed at their celebrated three year residency at NYC's Living Room.

Time Out Magazine NYC listed the Campilongo Monday night residency in the "TOP 50 NY SECRETS" and is must hear for all New Yorkers in the know.

Produced by New York legend Anton Fier (The Golden Palominos), "ORANGE" is an analog journey clocking in at 60 minutes plus.

"ORANGE" also features the Campilongo collaboration with renowned NYC singer/songwriter Leah Siegel on the Stooges "No Fun" and the Stones "No Expectations".

Campilongo also joins forces with guitarist Steve Cardenas (Charlie Haden, Paul Motian) on two beautiful and intimate acoustic duets. The title track "Orange" and "Because You Like Trombone" bring the tonal palette of "ORANGE" to heights unprecedented on previous Campilongo releases.

Jim Campilongo's "ORANGE" is on Blue Hen Records and is distributed by City Hall Records. It will be available for purchase at fine record stores everywhere, Amazon, I-Tunes, napster, and www.jimcampilongo.com in February 2010.

DIRECT CURRENT REVIEW OF "ORANGE" - Dec 2009

Guitarist Jim Campilongo has been called a "national treasure" by Billboard, an extraordinarily intuitive and gifted player who is not only renowned as an in-demand session player (for the likes of Norah Jones and Martha Wainwright) but as a musical visionary who has staked out his own creative outlook over the course of eight solo albums. With a ringing, sinewy style that sometimes sounds like it's literally being squeezed from his trusty '59 Telecaster, Campilongo finds that rarified space on a song that is distinctive without being overly showy, filling the spaces with a restraint that still manages to let his virtuosity shine through.

New February 16 album Orange is yet another collection of remarkable fret work from Campilongo, an astonishingly diverse assortment of instrumentals that should appeal to fans of Jeff Beck, Roy Buchanan and anyone who has secretly strutted a few air guitar riffs now and then. Produced by Anton Fier and backed by drummer Tony Mason and bassist Stephen Crump, Orange also boasts two outstanding covers -- The Stones' "No Expectations" and The Stooges' "No Fun" -- featuring vocalist Leah Siegel. Slowed and stripped to the core, these songs simply put Campilongo's inspired playing directly up against Siegel's impassioned voice in a one-on-one match that will raise goosebumps. The aptly titled,scorching instrumental workout "Backburner" kicks off Orange with an incendiary, muscular kick, setting and then blowing out the stage for the glorious works to come. Highly recommended.
