ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Award winning clarinetist Roger Campbell leads the hottest sextet since the Big Band Era! Swinging hard since 1997, this extraordinary group of musicians has performed thousands of concerts around the world for jazz festivals, clubs, weddings, summer concerts, and more. They conquer dizzying charts by the likes of Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Lionel Hampton. It's tight, fun, exciting, danceable, and hugely popular among the jazz and swing crowds. It's time for After Midnight!

"After Midnight has its roots buried deep in the Benny Goodman Sextet tradition. Same instrumentation - clarinet, vibraphone, piano, guitar, bass and drums - and arrangements that echo those of the BG six. Playing Goodman-based charts can be fraught with peril unless you have skilled musicians in every chair. After Midnight does." -- The American Rag

For many years, Clarinetist Roger Campbell dreamed of playing the music of the Benny Goodman Sextet. In 1997, that dream became reality when he teamed up with Vibist Rick Weingarten to play some of the best swing music ever written -- but with a little modern twist. Rather than recreate what Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Gene Krupa, and Charlie Christian mastered, After Midnight injects some modern style into those hits. We also incorporate music from Artie Shaw and his Gramercy Five plus other great swing music recently made popular by the likes of Dianna Krall, Norah Jones, Madelline Peroux, and Harry Connick Jr. We even play a few Ray Charles hits, just for fun!

Our instrumentation is unlike any other band in the region and very few in the world -- we feature Clarinet, Vibraphone, Piano, Bass, Guitar/Vocals, and Drums. What's a Vibraphone? It's a lot like bells or marimba, but has vibrato when you hit the metal bars. From time to time we are also fortunate to work with some of the best "chick" singers around including Jodi Renee, Wende Harston, Lisa Bell, Deejha Marie, and Joni Janak. We've even worked with actress Lea Thompson and her daughter Madelyn Deutch!

We've done thousands of concerts, weddings, events, festivals, dances, and clubs over the years. Some of the more memorable ones include:
Sacramento Jazz Jubilee
Capital City Jazz Festival
Evergreen Jazz Festival
Taste of Colorado
Cherry Creek Arts Festival
Jazz in the Sangres Festival

We hope you enjoy our music and join our growing fan base!
