Roy Campbell’s Akhenaten Ensemble at The Stone November 25th

On Tuesday, November 25th at 10:00 p.m., trumpeter/composer Roy Campbell will perform music from his March 2008 release, Akhenaten Suite (Arts for Art/Aum Fidelity), at The Stone in New York.  His Akhenaten Ensemble will feature Billy Bang (violin), Bryan Carrott (vibes), William Parker (bass) and Zen Matsuura (drums). 

Critics called Akhenaten Suite “a major statement ” (Ed Hazell, Signal to Noise), “a thoroughly refreshing album on several counts” (Bill Shoemaker, PointofDeparture.org) and “a fully formed suite, one which is worth repeated listening sessions” (Mark Corroto, AllAboutJazz.com).  “Campbell’s is a disciplined band serving composition and improvisation with great maturity,” added Kevin Le Gendre in Jazzwise, “and Akhenaten Suite is a finely written and performed work from an artist in his prime.”
