Charlie Hunter & Bobby Previte as Groundtruther: Longitude Groundtruther is an interesting project for Charlie Hunter and Bobby Previte. Each player has long established a solid musical realm of his own on recordings, but with their Groundtruther collaboration, they have found a guise that allows them to experiment well beyond their usual territories. This also explains why Matthew Shipp and Thirsty Ear are releasing a trilogy of albums by the duo (plus a guest on each), Longitude being the second.

Following the cerebral, flattened sound of Latitude (featuring alto saxophonist Greg Osby), Groundtruther welcomes DJ Logic as its third member this time around for an album of raucous, stimulating music that's just as dynamic as its predecessor, but in an entirely different context. Logic allows a simpatico sound to be formed that's unlike anything any one of them has yet recorded, yielding a loud ripping trio that brings more to the table than one would think imaginable. And one is made aware of this array of sounds from the very get go with the opening "Transit of Venus."

Track Listing: Transit of Venus; Tycho Brache; March 1741, Cape Horn; Course Made Good; Dead Reckoning; Medicean Stars; Jupiter Mask; H-4; Back-Quadrant; Epherimedes; Prime Meridian; South Heading; Untitled.

Personnel: Charlie Hunter: 8-string guitar; Bobby Previte: drums, percussion, electronics; DJ Logic: turntables.

Year Released: 2005 | Record Label: Thirsty Ear Recordings | Style: Modern Jazz
