"James Campbell is in top form as Canada's leading solo clarinetist, playing in the best of company... Campbell and friends are a company of virtuosi with their shirts unbuttoned, their bottles uncorked and their faces wreathed in smiles." - William Littler, Toronto Star.

"Thanks a bundle, James Campbell, for the life in this record - from the headstrong tunes of Percy Grainger (Molly on the Shore and Scotch Strathspey and Reel) to the longing of Solveig's Song from Grieg's Peer Gynt. Campbell's playing isn't just light and fun-loving here. It is, as always, impeccably styled and the Allegri Quartet is as responsive to Campbell as it is loyal to its own important sound... First Class." - London Free Press

A program of light classics and jazz. Great fun! With the Allegri String Quartet.
