Cami Thompson CD

 

 

This project began as a concert recorded by engineer-musician Guy Kowarsh on February 6, 2006 at the Atlantis Casino in Reno NV. The event was “A Note-Able Evening of Romance”, a benefit for the Note-Ables, a nonprofit organization providing music programs for children and adults with disabilities. Over the next four years, Guy would occasionally call me to do something with what he thought was a potentially great CD. I had my misgivings, displeased with my performances, but I decided to give it a shot. I had no idea how much work it would take, re-recording my vocals to perfectly match the originals, to get the quality I wanted. Nor did I know how clever and innovative Guy was, nor how wonderful the music would turn out. What a great surprise! Guy Kowarsh is a genius, editing, mixing, and mastering these 14 songs into a seamless CD. So have a listen - it’s like hearing a powerful, passionate, swingin' big band concert in your living room!

JAZZ ALIVE! - Reno Jazz Orchestra - CD

"JAZZ ALIVE!"

The Reno Jazz Orchestra with Guest artist Cami Thompson

Contemporary Big Band Jazz is alive and well in Reno, Nevada. Recorded live in John Ascuaga's NuggetCelebrity Showroom Feb. 17-18, 2011

 

JAZZ ALIVE! Reno jazz Orchestra

 

Original Release Date: October 15, 2012

Album Notes: by Music Director Chuck Reider
We wanted to capture the excitement and spirit of a live performance and we can’t thank John Ascuaga’s Nugget enough to host our recording in their Celebrity Showroom. I moved to Reno in 1979 to play in the showrooms and had the pleasure to work all the great acts appearing here, many on the very stage we recorded this cd, so the Celebrity Showroom was the perfect venue.
 
The RJO is comprised of the some of the most talented musicians in our area, but we are only a part of a very talented jazz community. With that in mind I felt it important to share the stage with some good friends.
I have had the pleasure of working with Cami Thompson and Tony Savage throughout my career. Both grew up right here and have given our community countless memorable performances. I succeeded Tony as RJO Music Director and it was great to have him come back for a visit.  Larry Engstrom is not only a gifted instrumentalist, but educator as well. He joined the UNR faculty in the 1980s and created a robust jazz performance program at UNR.  Peter Epstein was recruited by Larry to teach at UNR and you will agree Larry picked well! Leonard Neidhold is not only a great jazz trombonist but is also the Reno Philharmonic Principal Trombonist and teaches music at Billinghurst Middle School. Though not featured as a soloist, Ron Legg joined us on Roger Hogan’s Blues Ballad and it was a joy to share the stage with Ron on the stage he first graced as a section saxophonist and then leader of the Nugget band.
In the audience Friday night were two standard bearers of the jazz community. Jerry Genurio and Bob Barnes defined not only the sound of jazz, but showed those of us coming up not only how to play but how be musicians. True gentlemen of jazz! The jazz community also has some promising young talent and with the generosity of Tom Gordon, the Reno Youth Jazz Orchestra recorded on the Nugget stage Friday (2/17) afternoon prior to the evening RJO performance.

I am very proud of the RJO’s performance on this CD. It was an honor bringing the jazz community together for this project and the two performances that comprise this CD are two evenings I will always treasure. Jazz is alive in Reno Nevada and this CD is the proof.

BIGBANDJAZZ.NET CD COVER

 

 

Cami Thompson is featured as guest vocalist on this band's second CD. "Wow! This was one fun recording session! The charts were all so different, and well written. Six are originals, five are standards, and two are concert/film sound track type compositions. They go from a beautiful love song, "The Way He Makes Me Feel"(vocal by Cami Thompson) to some real swinging charts, that Al "Jazzbeaux" Collins would say, "... bite like battery acid!"    

JAZZTIMES review stated: "Worth noting: the two vocals by Cami Thompson (Cole Porter’s “I Concentrate on You” and Legrand and Bergman’s “The Way He Makes Me Feel”), for the accuracy of her intonation while scatting in unison with the band, and for clear diction and a range that won’t quit.
