Post Charlie Hunter
Santa Claus came this year with a Charlie Hunter DVD, Solos Jazz Sessions.
Being a huge fan of that guy and his playing, I just wanted to recommend that DVD, showing a very good and skilled musician playing solo and being not boring :



I do really think that Stick players should learn a lot from him.

That man makes me wanna get into the practice room...!

He's soooo musically developed and yes, he does seem to share are a common thread/inspiration with Stickists. I definitely find myself coming back to his ideas more and more.

The whole bass line to comping thing...... I hope to one day play with some of that fluency then add more of the contrapuntal ideas from the Stick. Ah well, one thing at a time.

Charlie Hunter has actually been more influential to my Stick playing than any Stick player.
The exception would be Tony Levin's playing with Crimson which led me to get a Stick in the first place in 1984.

I did back to back sets with Charlie this past September at our LBJF. Charlie does more than juggle multiple parts. His groove is always funky. It's all about the groove. I love his playing. His latest solo CD of old standards is absolutely killer. Charlie will be returning to LBJF Sept. 2012

I don't think. The beauty of his music is that, I think, he clearly understood the limitations of his instrument : he can't play all the time, thus it let the music a lot of room and space. We (the stickists, and I in particular) tend to fill the room with notes and notes, all the time. I may be wrong but it's the way I feel most of us.

All I'm saying is that his harmonic lines more advanced than any stickist I have heard.

He did a masterclass which some parts have been recorded (you can find under Charlie Hunter clinic). One is about interdependancy, and another one is about the Blues (and is just a lesson about musicality with capital M) ;)
