Charlie Hunter Trio
Charlie Hunter Trio features straight-forward jazz music, coupled with highly funky drumming and excellent guitar work. The Charlie Hunter Trio has been around since the 1990?s and has the beating heart of a jazz group. Noted for combining studio resourcefulness with live energy, the Trio has release 2 albums to date.
They released their first album Copperopolis in 2006 and Mistico in 2007. On their release ?Mistico?, first for Fantasy Records, the trio completed a transformation that began with Copperopolis. The trio?s lineup enlists Charlie Hunter on guitar, Tony Mason on drums and Erik Deutsch on keys.
The Charlie Hunter Trio is a great example of three people being in synch with each other and producing soulful music that appeals to everyone. The talented guitarist is backed by drums and sax, featuring a little keyboard experimentation too. The drumming is courtesy of Jay Lane, whose work greatly complements the guitar work of Charlie Hunter.
The guitar is minimalistic and goes well with Lane?s style and kit. However, the excellent saxaphone work of David Ellis stands out the most in the Trio?s music. It, along with Hunter?s guitar, makes the excursions from traditional jazz forms while the bass lines are pretty cool. If you?re ever inclined to foray into the jazz world, be sure to try out Charlie Hunter, we recommend it.
Despite lineup changes, Charlie Hunter?s trio has always consisted of a sax player and a drummer to support Hunter?s seven or eight string guitar heroics. In 1980s, American guitarist Charlie Hunter learnt the ropes, pulling eagerly from blues, rockabilly, funk, soul and jazz.
Picking up on the craze in hip hop, he teamed up with Michael Franti. He issued his straight-ahead jazz CD in 1995 entitled Bing?Bing?Bing. The fan base for Charlie Hunter grew as time went by. He continued gaining momentum by releasing several albums noted distinctly for his creative potential and sound music. His popularity increased and work got perfection when joined by John Ellis.
Around this time, Charlie Hunter decided to form a band. He named it Charlie Hunter Trio as he was backed up by Simon Lott on drums and Erik Deutsch on keyboards. The Charlie Hunter Trio sounds like the essence of easygoing. Their deceptively casual approach belies the detail contained in the guitar and keyboard work.
Together for over five years, having toured the world, the Charlie Hunter Trio released Copperopolis. The album features the same three guys, but it?s different in one big way. The addition of John Ellis? playing on both the Wurlitzer and the melodica provided a lot of space for Charlie Hunter to simply shred.
In 2006, the Trio released their album, Copperopolis, featuring a hip musical journey. Sometimes baleful, sometimes playful, but always musically irresistible, the album offers the best of jazz, funk, rock and blues. With a vibrant looseness and good humor, Copperopolis album begins with the moving jazz-funk boogie track, ?Cueball Bobbin?.
The single combines instrumental with blues-inspired distorted guitar riffs, swinging keyboards, and tenor sax over an intricate rock rhythm. Unlike Cueball Ribbob, Frontman is a mellow jazz ballad filled with tender, wailing guitar, moody keyboards, and echoing jazz drums.
The title track, Copperopolis, begins with a haunting intro and a menacing tone while featuring jazzy drum, saxophone and electric guitar ballad. The album spawned another single named ?Blue Sock?, features mellow jazz-blues music. The album closes with two quite slow-moving, sonically disparate songs: Drop the Rock and Think of One.
The album received critical acclaim which led to Charlie Hunter Trio to begin to record a new one. The following year in 2007, the Trio came up with another album titled Mistico. The album contains a genre-blending and enticing collection of songs.
For Mistico, Charlie Hunter completely remade the trio, fusing his virtuosity on the eight-string guitar with the keyboards of Erik Deutsch and the drums of Simon Lott to create a new sound. The album consists of ten comparatively short that represents Charlie Hunter?s respect for the compositional aspect of jazz.
There is almost an imperceptible flow in the trio?s playing as it moves into the moody languor of ?Estranged?. The album also spawned hit singles like Wizard Sleeve, Drop A Dime etc and us indeed the one that fans have been calling for years.
Charlie Hunter Trio is indeed a talent whose blend of guitar strings in straight-forward jazz music continues to surprise and capture listeners from all generations.
