If you have adventurous ears coupled with a penchant for electronic jazz you could do worse than investigate the latest album from Philadelphia trumpeter, arranger, and composer VINCE TAMPIO.

His six track ‘Sound Plan’ set fuses Jazz with Psychedelic Rock and Electronic Dance Music and Tampico leads the motley with his intriguing trumpet lines. He also plays all synthesizer, acoustic guitar, electric bass parts while Ben Diamond provides percussion and programmed drums. Multi-tasker, Vince, also composed, engineered, and produced all six tracks.

Most intriguing of the cuts is the 9 minute long ‘Slimery’, which really does sound like the implication in that title.

Tampio says that his music “juxtaposes acoustic tones with synthesized breadth to achieve an atmosphere inside which the listener can imagine themselves”.
