Horizontal

Horizontal

Legendary jazz pianist Red Camp’s Horizontal embodies the unusual harmonies he mastered through improvisation and experimentation while studying composition with the likes of Harold Morris, Miff Mole, Wild Bill Davidson, George Brunis, and Red McKenzie. Called “the Chopin of Corpus Christi” by Emory Cook of Cook Labs, Camp mixes Dixieland with blues, jazz, be-bop, and ragtime to create a sound that he hoped would be “not too cryptic nor too garrulous.” Indeed, Camp’s left-hand figurations are a lively celebration that balances “the lush and expansive with the dry and economical.”
