Camp Meeting

Camp Meeting is the tenth studio album by American pianist and singer Bruce Hornsby, who was joined by Christian McBride (bass) and Jack DeJohnette (drums). Pat Metheny was credited as "de facto" executive producer.

The album received a favorable review from JazzTimes, which described Hornsby's collaborators as "the best in the business" and the set list as "spectacular". It said: "What fun this record is ... Nothing here sounds like his pop music. Not only is his playing remarkable, but so is the interaction among the three musicians. The music stretches and contracts. It races, it gallops and it rumbles ... If these guys stick with it, they’ll be the freshest piano trio out there."[1]
