"A program of painterly originals that uses sparseness and absence in artful, melodic ways. Rooted in an aesthetic of twangy Americana lines, swirling contemporary keyboards, and blustery hard-bop grooves, the guitarist and his colleagues slide gracefully between emotional extremes."
"Boasting an inviting sound and evincing a compelling dexterity in his original compositions, Brooklyn-based guitarist Cameron Mizell shapes Negative Spaces with rigor and variety. Mizell doesn't need words to show he's a great storyteller.
"Mizell has a clean, precise tone and a versatility that brings to mind any number of other eclectic guitar slingers like Danny Gatton, Bill Frisell, John Scofield, Link Wray andJoel Harrison. He can evoke a pastoral sunrise as well as a sweaty roadhouse and this trio format gives him a basic but flexible platform for strutting his stuff. He really deserves a lot of attention."
"There's so much to appreciate on Negative Spaces thanks to the cohesion of group, its individual voices, and Mizell's song-oriented vision.
Solo Guitar Release
THE EDGE OF VISIBILITY
The first solo guitar recording by Cameron Mizell.
Combining improvisational jazz with traces of progressive rock and avant-garde experimentalism, Mizell explores the sounds of the dreaming and waking world. This is a thought-provoking work, one that lingers in the memory long after it has ceased spinning.
The album epitomizes a vast and inventive sonic encounter, an unconventional plunge into subliminal escape and mood-altering cognizance. Mizell superbly presents high technical proficiency, artistry, and melodic skills in this praiseworthy and tastefully hypnotic collection.
Recorded July 6, 2015 by Ted Tuthill at Sear Sound, NYC, with Grant Valentine, assistant engineer. Mixed and mastered by George Shalda at Beardog Studios, Austin, TX. Design: Kadie Foppiano. Executive Producer: Mike Shields.
