One would expect a jazz piece entitled “Think Tank” to be heady. And the title track from Will Campbell’s latest offering does flex our grey matter, but not at the expense of musicality. Here is a refreshing bit of mind-candy, like lemonade for the brain on a warm summer’s day. A cool breeze through the synapses, if you will. As clean a recording of acoustic piano, drums and bass as you will find, this is a virtuoso performance of an original and ambitious composition. Nothing I don’t love about it.
