What We Have In Common
Charlie Rauh & Cameron Mizell
Coming June 2019 on Destiny Records!
I am pleased to announce an upcoming album of duets with my good friend and guitarist Charlie Rauh. Charlie is one my favorite musicians to work with and making this record was inevitable. What We Have In Common is as much about our shared aesthetic approach to making music as it is about the differences in our playing. We co-wrote one tune, “A Thousand Faces,” and each contributed four more tunes. To cap things off, our good friend and brilliant artist ESS SEE contributed lyrics and vocals to two songs—a vocal version of “A Thousand Faces” and another of Charlie’s originals.
The release will feature a limited edition booklet of lead sheets and some of my artwork for each tune. Join my email list at the bottom of my website to get updates when What We Have In Common is available for pre-order!
Memory / Imagination
"Skillfully pairing controlled abstraction with Americana roots, Cameron Mizell probes new conceptions for his musical creativity, stepping on offbeat yet appetizing territories."
"Decidedly different than any other solo guitar album you’ve heard before. If you love well-sculpted solo guitar, this is a must-have for your collection."
- Dick Metcalf
"Memory/Imagination stands out as an eclectic collection of songs, reflecting on Cameron's penchant for melody, as well as exploring his most forward-thinking aspirations."
- No Depression
“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”
- DownBeat Magazine, Editors' Pick Oct 2016
"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."
"There's so much to appreciate on Negative Spaces thanks to the cohesion of group, it's individual voices, and Mizell's song-oriented vision."
- The New York City Jazz Record
The Edge Of Visibility
“Splendid… striking… separating this guitarist from the pack.”
- DownBeat Magazine
"Each track on The Edge of Visibility sounds like fragments of memories, cinematic visuals that unreel in the imagination."
- No Depression
"Guitarist Cameron Mizell's fearless spirit travels to a different cosmos with his album, The Edge of Visibility. Mizell superbly presents high technical proficiency, artistry, and melodic skills in this praiseworthy and tastefully hypnotic collection."
