Biography

New York City, New York, USA. Trumpeter Campbell plays the cornet, flügelhorn and pocket trumpet, in addition to the recorder, wood flute and various percussion instruments. He plays in an energized post-bop style that can at times slip easily into free form. Nevertheless, Campbell rarely strays far from the lyrical aspects of music, and even at his most acidic can unexpectedly find a melodic touch. During the 90s he spent much of his time in the Netherlands recording with local musicians. He set up the Pyramid Trio with William Parker (bass, percussion) and a series of drummers, including Zen Matsura, recording sessions for the Silkheart and No More labels. Campbell also records as part of Other Dimensions In Music, with Parker, Daniel Carter (reeds), and Rashid Bakr (drums) and as a musical partnership with Burton Greene.
