Moondoc Tentet, Jemeel / Jus Grew Orchestra
Live at the Vision Festival 2001

Moondoc Tentet, Jemeel / Jus Grew Orchestra: Live at the Vision Festival 2001 (Ayler)
Label: Ayler    
Released in: Sweden    


"A pretty straightforward, high energy, 45-minute set from Jemeel Moondoc's pet project, one that has remained criminally under-recorded over the years. The lineup is impressive, with Moondoc on alto and conducting, Zane Massey on tenor, Michael Marcus on baritone, Roy Campbell and Nathan Breedlove on trumpet, Steve Swell and Tyron Hill on trombone, Bern Nix on guitar, John Voigt on bass, and Gerald Cleaver on drums.

Of the four tracks, the slow blues, "The Blue Dog-Blues for Earl Cross," allows the soloists the most room to stretch out, with incendiary solos by Campbell and Nix. The other three tracks feature yeoman work by Voigt, with a magisterial sound, he and Cleaver setting up a roiling rhythm over which the reed and brass sections riff against the soloists' statements.

Overall, the album is quite enjoyable on it own terms, terms that were first laid out by people like Count Basie 60-odd years ago. The details have changed over the years, but the template remains much the same. It ain't baroque, so there's no need to fix it."-Mike Chamberlain, The Squid's Ear



"Roy Sinclair Campbell Jr. (September 29, 1952 - January 9, 2014) was an American trumpeter frequently linked to free jazz, although he also performed rhythm and blues and funk during his career.

Born in Los Angeles, California, in 1952, Campbell was raised in New York City. At the age of fifteen he began learning to play trumpet and soon studied at the Jazz Mobile program along with Kenny Dorham, Lee Morgan and Joe Newman. Throughout the 1960s, still unacquainted with the avant-garde movement, Campbell performed in the big bands of the Manhattan Community College. From the 1970s onwards he performed primarily within the context of free jazz, spending some of this period studying with Yusef Lateef.

In the early 1990s Campbell moved to the Netherlands and performed regularly with Klaas Hekman and Don Cherry. In addition to leading his own groups, he performed with Yo La Tengo, William Parker, Peter Brotzmann, Matthew Shipp, and other improvisors. Upon returning to the United States he began leading his group Other Dimensions In Music and also formed the Pyramid Trio, a pianoless trio formed with William Parker. He performed regularly as part of the Festival of New Trumpet Music, which is held annually in New York City.

He died in January 2014 of hypertensive atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease at the age of 61."
