Album Notes
"Black Hills Jam" is Classic Rock to the core - a celebration of innovative guitar-interplay with a solid jam-band groove. This CD features 70 minutes of new and original music. The tracks range from an Allman-esque jam to heavy metal bebop to a psychedelic acid-rock riff-fest and visits all points between.

"Black Hills Jam" is a reminder of how exciting rock was when experimentation was mainstream rock-n-roll fare. This genre-bending classic is a disc all fans of rock, jazz and jam will appreciate.


"It's been a long while since I've heard such sure-footed musicians having so much fun while taking so many risks."
--Alan Paul, GuitarWorld Magazine

"The best 'jam' record I've heard in years."
--Mick Skidmore, Relix Magazine

"Crunchy guitar riffs, funky bass parts, freeforming saxophones, it's as if the Allman Brothers got together with the Mahavishnu Orchestra, and had themselves a little jamming baby... Absolutely outstanding!"
--Stuart Hamilton, Space Rock

"Hearkens to the early Grateful Dead style of jamming, amid touches of progressive rock, jazz, southern rock and more... reminiscent of those classic '60s and '70s outdoor rock festivals."
--Glenn Astarita, JazzReview

"(Black Hills Jam) is a thoroughly enjoyable CD from a hot instrumental group... whether your gig is jazz, rock, prog, or hard-rock, this should satisfy."
--Pete Pardo, Sea of Tranquility

"Imagine Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page, Jerry Garcia, and a host of other fabulous music-makers improvising... the resulting music would likely sound like Jam Camp's Black Hills Jam."
--Thea Cooke, MXDWN.com

"An experimental prog-acid-fusion-rock explosion of talent... This is a great CD!"
-- Ytsejam.com

"This is an amazing band and one that I want to hear more of soon."
-- ProgressiveWorld

"Jam Camp explores a genre-defying mix of music which is sometimes jazzy and sometimes full-frontal assualt rock and roll... Fans of the instrumental and experimental need look no further!"
-- MISH MASH Music Reviews

"If you are into high energy instrumental rock/fusion you should try some of this Black Hills Jam."
-- ProGGnosis

"Black Hills Jam is definitely a masterpiece."
--Vitaly Menshikov, Progressor

"Jam Camp plays exceptionally, displaying feel, technique, solid musicianship and creativity within the groovy vibe... This is catchy, creative, and very fun music."
--Modern Drummer Magazine, April 2005

Best CD I have bought this year.
Forget 5 Stars. This is a masterful work by some very talented musicians. A CD like this hasn’t hooked me in some time and I buy lots of music. Band interplay in gigantic proportions. Solo’s going off in every direction and some real strong rhythm guitar. Add the sax to the mix and this CD is just plain out unbelievable. To top that off this CD runs a total of 69 minutes.




Jimi, Randle Bramblet, Gov't Mule, The Allmans, The Dead...These are some of my favorites. I rank Jam Camp among them. In an age of supersonic pop-cultural snippets, often generated by computers, synthesizers and beat machines, I have found in Black Hills Jam a true soundscape through which to journey. Todays pop music has become a pretty face, a nice body, some power chords and an electronic drumb beat. For those who still prefer a genuine sensory experience, colored with contrast and peppered with the occasional eargasm, this is it. These guys converse without words. If you have suffered the diminished attention span typical of victims of contemporary pop music, these guys might just be the cure.


These guys are locked into one another and just let it flow...sometimes knocking you down with powerful jamming...then picking you up and sliding you into jazz inflected grooves. It reminds me of that west coast jam sound pioneered by bands like Zero. Sweet stuff for sure!
