As music critic Don Campbell of the Oregonian aptly reported, "Jamie Stillway not only comps big, fat, swinging and expensive jazz chords but picks with a ferocity that would make Django proud. If she's not grinning ear to ear during her solos, she should be. Her technique is commanding and artful, and she possesses a gypsy soul that would be at home in 1930s Paris, or busking on the streets of Dallas". In 2005, Stillway released her debut solo CD, "Mell of a Hess," which featured several guests musicians, including upright bassist Tim Renner and drummer Sean Moultrie. After a successful solo tour of Austria and Germany, in which Stillway received an endorsement from Stevens Guitar of Munich, Stillway returned to the states, and has been appearing around the Pacific Northwest with Renner and Moultrie as the Jamie Stillway Trio.
Although the three musicians have been working together only a short time, the group has been garnering great reviews, and not just from family members. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
