Col. Bruce Hampton
Col. Bruce Hampton has been making music since he formed his first band in 1963. The Colonel has been in constant motion ever since leaving a trail of memorable live performances with his many bands, including The Late Bronze Age and Col. Bruce Hampton and The Aquarium Rescue Unit.
Along the way he appeared in the movie "Sling Blade" as the poet and band manager Morris and starred in Mike Gordon's cult classic "Outside Out" as a mystical guitar 'out'structor.
Still rolling down the road, Col. Bruce continues his quest for the tonal center at each exit #6.
"The music is sheer genius - it's jazz, but The Colonel's too smart to call it that - plus it's a lot of other things, such as blues and, most of all, fun." -- Stanley Booth - liner notes "One Ruined Life"
"Hampton's formula is that he surrounds himself with extraordinary musicians, gives them a strong framework with which to play and then sets them loose." -- Scott Freeman - Creative Loafing Magazine
"Music involving vocalist/guitarist Col. Bruce Hampton is likely to go in as many unpredictable directions as a conversation with him." -- Bill Meredith - Jazziz Magazine
"Over the years he served as a conduit for avant-garde interpretations of jazz and bluegrass and blues, the pure forms of American music thrown into a blender and poured into a steaming chalice of strangeness." -- Tom Speed - Honest Tune Magazine
