We gave it a B+

The debut recording of John Campbell, a pianist from Chicago, slipped out at the end of last year to deafening silence; After Hours, however, is a remarkable trio session graced by uncommonly fluent bebop phrasing. The Avery Parrish blues that gives the album its name is actually a disappointment — the tempo is too bright, the cymbals too busy. Yet on the bop classics Campbell shines: ”Star Eyes,” especially, is distinguished by clarity and a profusion of invigorating ideas. B+
