Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

CHARLIE HUNTER AND BOBBY PREVITE/GROUNDTRUTHER

ALTITUDES

2008-01-08

This is the third installment of the Groundtruther trilogy where Hunter and Previte invite John Medeski as their guest. The album is separated into two concepts. Above Sea Level is the electrified set, while Below Sea Level is acoustic. This is not a typical jazz album that might have you tapping your feet or swinging your hips. It is simply spontaneous improvisation which is spacey, tripped-out, and full of distortion and wicked tones. Reviewed by LaRae WYCE Programmer
