Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

CHARLIE HUNTER

GENTLEMEN I NEGLECTED TO INFORM YOU YOU WILL NOT BE GETTING PAID

2010-02-22

This CD certainly has the longest title of any new release and is one of the most accessible Charlie Hunter releases to date. This CD recorded in glorious mono is a guitar player’s masterpiece featuring the signature style of Charlie’s seven string guitar. This release does feature a three piece horn section. But with the exception of the New Orleans track “Antoine” and “High Pockets And A Fanny Pack” and “Drop A Dime” they have a more subdued backing sound. Drummer Eric Kalb joins Charlie for the first time and keeps the rhythm section sound through all nine tracks. It is hard to believe that one guitar can feel the room with this much sound, but then again it is Charlie Hunter. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
