Since 1995 when the rebirth of the State Theatre had a shiny new stage, and “The River, 105.5FM” came to life as a smooth jazz radio station at the same time a music boosters group decided that the State should introduce Modesto to live smooth jazz. 

The days of smooth jazz at the State has come and gone as has “The River”.  The remaining constant has been John Griswold’s commitment to presenting the best of the smooth jazz artists.  One (among others) of those artists, practically from the first day, Tim “Slim Man” Camponeschi, and accomplished bassist and jazz singer, has remained a constant through the years.

Over those years, the yearly performances by Slim Man have been recorded by a hired sound company “WCSL”.  Owner Paul Doty and Slim have compiled the best of the best of those recordings and created Slim’s first ever “Live” CD.  Songs recorded right here in Modesto are being sold world-wide.  Slim has a total of 14 plus CDs and scores of his cooking show videos.
