Bruce Hornsby_camp meetingBruce Hornsby Feelin’ Jazzy on New Album “Camp Meeting”

June 21, 2007 – Remember when Bruce Hornsby almost signed to the New Age Label Windham Hill in the mid eighties? Would he have gone soft in the company of George Winston or Nightnoise or would the piano man have arrived sooner to the sound of his new album “Camp Meeting?” The pianist extraordinaire has finally arrived firmly in Jazz a genre he has flirted with on most of his albums. The instrumental CD, to be released on Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony BMG on August 7. Joining Hornsby will be bassist Christian McBride and drummer Jack DeJohnette. Expect interpretations of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and Bud Powell tunes as well as, or course a few Hornsby originals. “I’ve spent my entire life combating closed-mindedness in music as well as the lack of an adventurous spirit,” says Hornsby, “Just like all my music, this jazz album is coming from a natural place in me.” Hornsby says “Camp Meeting” “Bill Evans-meets-the hymnbook. His last CD was a duo effort with long time friend Ricky Scaggs and before that Hornsby charted on Triple A charts with “Gonna Be Some Changes Made” from “Halcyon Days.” – by John Beaudin
