Biography All Music Guide

All Music Guide:

Royce Campbell's blues-influenced, hyper-relaxed jazz-guitar playing has earned him accolades as a solo performer and made him a sought-after session musician. His first experience came touring the U.S. in Marvin Gaye's band, before being tapped by Henry Mancini, in whose orchestra Campbell stayed for two decades; Campbell's gentle, flowing swing formed a subtle backdrop for the composer's ever-cinematic works. A versatile performer, Campbell's expert guitar graced recordings of everyone from Dave Brubeck to Liza Minnelli to Sarah Vaughan. In the '90s, Campbell stepped out under his own name, starting with the dreamily melodic Nighttime Daydreams in 1990, and eventually extending to several dozen recordings., Rovi
