This CD is for listeners who can truly appreciate quality and who know seasoned professionals when they hear them play. These days, many CDs are merely a collection of good musicians who get together to impress each other with how well they can play, but Will Campbell's compositions and arrangements as well as his lyrical playing gives these excellent musicians a sense of clarity and direction. I enjoyed listening to every minute of this CD.

-Dennis Mackrel, Dizzy Gillespie Alumni Band/Hank Jones Trio

This soulful, swinging CD has everything I look for: Finely crafted original music played with beautiful rapport and expert execution, which these days is all too rare. Enjoy.

-Jim Rotondi, One For All/George Coleman Octet

Will Campbellā€™s debut CD is a wonderful reflection in flowing forward with tradition and individuality. He is a beautifully melodic player with his own unique harmonic flow and sound on the alto.

-Dick Oatts, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra/Red Rodney Quintet

This North Carolina alto saxist's first recording as a leader showcases distinct, imaginative writing and snappy, soulful playing that does justice to the six original tracks and one reworked standard. It's melodic, straight-ahead jazz with intricate improvised solos. Such a cohesive unit, it's a shame to single out any of the players, but drummer Rick Dior and pianist Stefan Karlsson are a marvel and Campbell's jaunty sound sets the pace. Overdue debut for Campbell, formerly of Harry Connick Jr.'s orchestra. Top Track: Love the horn harmony on "Olive Street."

-Ashante Infantry, (Toronto Star)

Every once in awhile there emerges a record that is brimful with sinewy, simply honest music that reverberates from one song to another and leaves echoes of melodies or twists and turns in the musicians' solos long after the last notes of the record have died down. This is how alto saxophonist Will Campbell's debut as leader, Think Tank, runs the gauntlet in the tough and crowded musical world where post-bop alto saxophonists have been competing ever since Bird left the scene six decades ago.

Campbell is always meticulous in his pace, letting his warm, fat tone sing out as he constructs solos of breathtaking resonance.
