Tim Campanella - 1st Album "Mixtape of Impromptu"












Dear friends,


After some years of working, thinking, and waiting, I decided this year to record my first album as a leader.


I wanted to answer to the question « Who am I ? » by trying to write compositions that would fit me and represent my past.


I didn’t want to neglect the musical influences that I had since my childhood, and that’s why you’ll hear a music where Jazz is mixed with hip/hop, rock or even classical music.


To record that album I had the chance to have some amazing musicians that I also appreciate a lot on a human level :


Shai Maestro (piano and fender rhodes)

Gilad Hekselman (guitar)

John Ellis (saxophone and bass clarinet)

Chris Smith (acoustic bass and electric bass)




I had also with me some special guests, that I really appreciate on the same level :


Meak (rap) and Athena Campanella (vocals) – who happens to be my sister !


The album was recorded on the 23rd of March 2012 at « System Two Studios » in New York, and was mixed and mastered by Philippe Gaillot at « Studio Recall », in the south of France (Pompignan).




The voices were recorded at « Zac Sound » by Zacharie Ouachekradi in Chartres (near Paris, France).


At this point, to put the album out, I need a little help from you guys (see details below).
