Royce Campbell Plays The Christmas Song
Here's an old chestnut from 1945. Written by Mel Torme and Bob Wells, The Christmas Song was recorded most famously by the great Nat King Cole.
The guitar player in this vid is Royce Campbell who at age 28 became the touring guitarist for composer/arranger Henry Mancini's orchestra up until Mancini's passing in 1994.
Royce has also toured with Cleo Laine, Marvin Gaye and Mel Torme and has performed with jazz luminaries Jack McDuff, Jimmy Cobb, Joe Williams, Groove Holmes and James Moody.
Merry Christmas to you and yours, from all of us here at The Guitar Column!
