Charlie Hunter Trio: Mistico

Read "Mistico" reviewed by Chris May

On Mistico, Charlie Hunter finally, after a couple of near misses, gets in touch with his inner rock guitarist. The disc's immediate predecessors--Copperopolis (Ropeadope, 2006) and Longitude (Thirsty Ear, 2005)--inhabited similarly full-on visceral territory, but here those albums' funk quotients are reduced to practically zero in favor of dirty, confrontational, rock 'n' roll.

Charlie Hunter Trio: Copperopolis

Read "Copperopolis" reviewed by Paul Olson

Eight-string guitar whiz Charlie Hunter has done some especially interesting work recently--his Groundtruther experiments with percussionist Bobby Previte explored the limits of outside studio improvisation while his playing in the collective band Garage à Trois dug deep into New Orleans third-line groove and stacked rhythms. As good as those projects were, it's nice to see Hunter ...

Charlie Hunter Trio: Copperopolis

Read "Copperopolis" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

To say that guitarist Charlie Hunter's been busy is an understatement. Constantly touring and collaborating with Garage à Trois and Groundtruther, he still found time to record Copperopolis with a trio that has been together for over five years.

This followup to 2004's Friends Seen and Unseen finds Hunter with drummer Derrek Phillips ...
