Roy Campbell
VISION 19 - Studies In Freedom.

Wednesday June 11 thru Sunday June 15, 2014


Roy Campbell was deeply grounded in the jazz tradition, and exhibited a working musician’s flexibility, with experiences ranging from R. & B. bands to off-Broadway shows, to reggae to electronics.

Like Don Cherry, one of his heroes, Campbell was an omnivorous collaborator, working with hundreds of musicians all around the world.

But at his core he was a true New Yorker, representing a particularly rugged and independent streak of African-American improvisational music that has stubbornly survived in the city despite gentrification and changing trends.

Drawing from the ecstatic spiritualism of Albert Ayler and John Coltrane in the nineteen-sixties, which developed in Lower East Side lofts and alternative-art spaces in the nineteen-seventies, Campbell was committed to a kind of free-improvisational music that prized passionate individualism and advocated for a shared sense of community over the fickle rewards of the music industry.
