Given that Royce Campbell was Henry Mancini's touring guitarist for 20 years, he of all people was reasonably entitled to record a tribute album such as this, supported by Bruce Barth (piano), Bill Moring (bass) and Terry Clarke (drums). It's a bit on the dry and cool side, but impeccably arranged and played, featuring many of the great man's favourite compositions such as Moon River, Charade, (Days of) Wine and Roses, Breakfast At Tiffany's and, of course, the theme from the Pink Panther.

There's not much more to say about it really. It's very listenable and although there's a wealth of such albums from which to choose (Dave Grusin's Two For The Road being another of my favourites), this is as good a place as any to start. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Jazz Quartet Interpretation of Mancini Compositions 6 Jan. 2006
By Robert J. Ament - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I came across this in an "Easy Listening" section of one of the few stores I is that...but a lot more!!

The program is mostly of Henry Mancini's music from the movies except for two selections from television and an original composition, "Letter To Henry", by Royce Campbell.

Royce Campbell is well qualified for this tribute having been Mancini's guitarist for almost 20 years. If you have to categorize his style and sound, it's very much like Wes Montgomery with a touch of George Benson. He's a very gifted and versatile musician, having played with a number of symphony orchestras including my hometown St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. His style is richly melodic and tasteful, unhurried yet driving, with a lyrical approach to changes. His musical associates for this program are pianist Bruce Barth, bassist Bill Moring, and the well known drummer, Terry Clarke.

If you like Mancini's music, it's difficult to pick favorites from this program. The warm fluid sound of Campbell on a well thought out solo rendition of "Dreamsville" is probably my favorite. "Wine And Roses" and "Mr Lucky" are two really swinging head arrangements (Royce calls them "faking gigs") that show off the quartet at its best, complete to trading fours. The beautiful theme from "Breakfast At Tiffany's" comes across as very refined, sophisticated jazz with some great "Shearing" type of piano/guitar also does "Pink Panther", a tune I will always associate with tenor saxist Plas Johnson. The tune most famous from "Breakfast At Tiffany's", "Moon River", described by Royce as a "Mancini Mona Lisa", is very tastefully done in 4/4 time with a bossa nova rhythm.

The entire cd is solid! You will want this for your collection if you enjoy Henry Mancini's music, an excellent jazz quartet, or a dynamite guitar sound in one or all combinations.

Just to say I really enjoyed this album. A truly great guitarist in my view. Saddened to hear I believe he's suffered a stroke.
