Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Guitarist takes a brief break from his country-jazz ensemble, the Ten Gallon Cats, and joins Table For One co-horts Rob Burger (of Bill Frisell, Tin Hat Trio fame), Chris Kee & Jason Lewis - they journey into a soundscape of shadowy scenery on 10 instrumentals that combine elements of pop/rock & jazz, destined for the big screen.

Amazon.com

Acclaimed (albeit not as widely as deserved) for his six-string calisthenics, San Francisco guitarist Jim Campilongo curbs his fieriness with this reflective 10-song outing. Working with accordionist/keyboardist Rob Burger as his main foil (rather than regular steel guitarist Joe Goldmark), Campilongo has created something quite rare--an instrumental album that's intensely personal. One can't help but feel there's a story behind the lost-in-thought likes of "The Grass is Greener," "Sarah," and the title track. Strikingly reserved when compared with the have-I-got-a-lick-for-you likes of 1997's Loose and 2000's Heavy, Table for One may nevertheless be Campilongo's most involving recording. Just goes to show that sometimes a whisper comes through more clearly than a scream. --Steven Stolder

What a change from his first two albums. Well, there may have been a hint on the others. Aptly titled, right on the money. Dark country meets jazz somewhere in France and slow at that. I don't think there is one song over 100 beats per minute. Only one song with Joe Goldmark on steel. Replaced with B-3 organ and accordian. Still, it's a great CD. I really like it. But, very different from the first two. Worth a listen.

A departure from previous recordings, 'Table for One' is more intense in mood and feel. The all-instrumental record has scaled back the trademark pedal steel giving way to healthy portions of organ and accordion - did I say accordion? Yeah, and it's hip. This album is very slow and deliberate in it's story telling, taking time to explore each melody fully, rushing past nothing while retaining a smooth even flow. Jim's playing is impeccable and the tonal voices he creates are breathtaking (Is the guitar weeping on Fiesty's Ride?). This is a wonderfully composed collection of introspective, intense and emotional pieces and some of Jim's finest song writing yet.
Jim's unique style and vibe on 'Table for One' is sweet as a first kiss and as heart breaking as the day you came home to find her toothbrush gone. This is a great buy.

This CD is a great collection of emotional music from the heart. I've sat and listened to this CD on many occasions and enjoyed it like a good movie. Very few records have that quality ( Sgt Peppers-Kind Of Blue-Joni Mitchell's Blue) but "Table For One is a "Noir Calssic". From the first vocal - like guitar line on "The Grass Is Greener" to the final chord of the ironic "This Old Man" this record plays like a well thought out body of work . Beause of this it is certainly the most "even" of any Campilongo releases. Rob Burger's Accordion is mixed appropriately hot and loud on the gentle ballads that give a feeling of "breathy" intamacy. Great songs from beginning to end.... "Table For One " is beautiful music.
