Guitarist, singer, and songwriter John Campbell had the potential of turning a whole new generation of people onto the blues in the 1990s, much the same way Stevie Ray Vaughan did in the '80s. His vocals were so powerful and his guitar playing so fiery, you couldn't help but stop what you were doing and pay attention to what you were hearing. But unfortunately, because of frail health and a rough European tour, he suffered a heart attack in his sleep on June 13, 1993, at the age of 41. In 1985, after playing a variety of clubs between east Texas and New Orleans, Campbell moved to New York. One night in New York, guitarist Ronnie Earl happened upon Campbell in a club, playing with Johnny Littlejohn. Earl was so impressed that he offered to produce an album by Campbell, and the result was A Man and His Blues (Crosscut 1019), a Germany-only release that has since been made available in the U.S.

The Lebanese, Paris based trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf is a versatile musician who creates with charm and musical power wonderful solo albums like ‘Ullusions‘, ‘Wind‘ (music for the silent film ‘La Proie du Vent‘ 1926 by René Clair) and his three CD box ‘Dia‘. The use of electronics, solid jazz and trumpet section with four trumpets on ‘Illusions‘ makes him a pioneer who put the trumpet in a broader perspective.
