Upbeat funky stuff led by guitar -- Charlie Hunter on his trademark 8-string -- and sax from John Ellis. Lots of likeable melodies, interesting solos, and danceable backbeats. |
Ellis also dabbles on wurlitzer (2) or melodia (7) for some variety. Fun stuff all around, maybe with a bigger variety of guitar sounds than previously? Seems there's more of a blues/rock feel here, a tougher edge than Hunter's earlier, organ-jazz-sounding CDs. Cool stuff.
1- Fuzzed out mid/fast
2- Midtempo, slowish bluesy feel, ... Wurlitzer and warbly guitar in midtempo, warmly bluesy setting
3- Mid/fast and bouncy, catchy
4- Slow tumbling, into a steady funky step. Midtempo feel.
5- Funky and light midtempo. Nice melody for the "chorus."
6- Snappy rock piece, like a gritty street scene. Mid/fast, bright
Stops very suddenly.
7- Mid/slow, a loping sense of humor.
8- The Experimental one, slow and avant-jazzy but pleasant
9- Happy Monk cover, mid/fast
