Charlie Hunter: Charlie Hunter
Highly recommended, Charlie Hunter’s latest album places an emphasis on overall ensemble sound and individual lyricism. My only regret is that it’s not long enough. While 48:22 is sufficient time for a recording session, these guys are on a roll. I’d love to have two or three more hours from the same band. It’s ironic that Hunter’s self-titled album is his best to date. He stays within the boundaries of mainstream jazz while folding in Latin, African, Asian, and New Orleans.
