Guitarist Cameron Mizell dazzles with adventurous new jazz release
(Published: November 14, 2015)

An artist who follows his own muse, regardless of commercial appeal: That's not common in the jazz scene these days, where playing it safe is too often the norm.

Guitarist Cameron Mizell is a much-needed exception, a musician who walks unafraid, daring to let his fingers roam the fringes of his creativity. Mizell's latest album, The Edge of Visibility, is a collection of improvisational jazz and high-I.Q. tinkering.

For an album of sonic experimentation, it is also surprisingly melodic and even relaxing to the ears. As the days draw closer to winter, Mizell has produced a record that could prove to be a seasonal favorite. There is an icy quality to many of these tracks but Mizell has a poetic ear for mood and atmosphere. The contemplative "Everyone Has Blind Spots," for example, has the liquid flow of a rainy-day soundtrack. It's not depressing; it's just introspective, music that really triggers pictures in the mind. What Mizell is trying to convey is open to interpretation; repeated listens only open the doors to various explanations.

"Rooster Tail" is among the highlights as Mizell's guitar has an ominous undertow. Strange effects add to the mystery, and Mizell offers broken pieces of a puzzle that fascinate and stimulate. It's not all dark shadows, though. "Alice" ends the album with a ray of bright light, sparkling like fireworks.
