Jim Campilongo Milestones, Guitars and Oranges

He was celebrating more than just his Living Room Anniversary, but the release of his new CD “Orange” and the impending release of his very own Fender Signature Telecaster.

    WOW…I just posted the other day that I was digging the guitar player from Norah Jones’ Little Willies band and someone told me his name. I looked him up on iTunes yesterday and now here he is today. I’ll be purchasing some CDs next pay day!

    Wishing you continued success, Mr. Campilongo. You have inspired a lot of us Telewankers to think outside the box.

  4. Congrats, Jim. We wear the badge of “guitar geeks” with pride and honor.

    My brother, who lives in Manhattan gave me one of Jim’s CD’s a couple of years ago. Since then, Jim’s the reason I bought a Tele, (and I also schedule my NYC visits around when he is playing).

    I saw Jim at Barbes last year and really enjoyed it. I like Jim because he’s very different from other players and the variety of sounds he coaxes out of the Tele is impressive.

    Hi Jim,

    Lately I’ve only had 4 cd’s in my rotation list – Howard Roberts is a Dirty Guitar Player; Jeff Beck Live at Ronnie Scott’s; 555 from the Mercury Living Presence Series featureing Antal Dorati conducting the London Symphony Orchestra through selected works of Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern and Alban Berg; and last but not least… Orange. It’s a beautiful record you’ve put together and my favorite from your catalog. Congratulations and best wishes for your continued success.

    Yeah, I knew of Jim’s instructional stuff here and there for years. I event bought some off of his website. I remember watching the Little Willies on Conan four or five years ago and I was just blown away by how cool their guitar player was. Turns out it was Jim Campilongo. It’s great to see a great player and a great guy get recognition, Jim deserves it. Here is to his continue success.
