Yhdysvaltalainen Jim Campilongo lukeutuu tämän hetken country-, blues- ja jazzkitaristien eliittiin. Ainutlaatuisesta Telecaster-soundistaan tunnettu musiikintekijä on julkaissut urallaan peräti 11 albumia, ja esiintynyt ympäri maailmaa mm. Norah Jonesin, JJ Calen ja Al Andersonin kaltaisten artistien kanssa. G Livelabissa Campilongo esiintyy kotimaisen The Fabulous M-Street Bandin kera.

New York roots rock guitarist Jim Campilongo visits G Livelab in September. Billboard Magazine calls him "an American treasure", an accolade which this guitarist's artistry and influential career has rightly earned him. With eleven albums under his belt, he has performed with the likes of JJ Cale and Al Anderson, just to mention a few. Here Campilongo plays together with The Fabulous M-Street Band.

"Campilongo is one of those New York secrets. A master of the electric guitar, he weaves in spaghetti western picks, blues chords and jazz refs into his haunting tunes, a combo of originals and covers." –New York Post
