Nerissa Campbell new album Musings of a Telescopic Tree


Sign in to view read count
With elements of pop, jazz, rhumba and blues dipped in a smoky beer batter of late night living and roiling in the smoke of forgotten bars, the Brooklyn-based indie-jazz chanteuse moodily enchants with her second album.

Musings of a Telescopic Tree is an album of moodiness and of melancholy - stories of desire and the sorrows of losing loved things, the weight of depression and the lightness of being. The indie-jazz singer-songwriter ponders a new approach to her music, - its roots in jazz, it also weaves its way through somber pop-ballads, bluesy folk songs, moody instrumentals and a lyricism full of thought and space. Her songs roil in the smoke of forgotten bars and express a love of many styles and thoughts.

Campbell composed these songs in her home of Brooklyn, NY as well on travels across Europe, Australia and North America. Drawn largely on her own life stories and from the tales of the characters from those adventures, her songs are a manuscript of insights to self and the world around her.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
