Charlie Hunter Quartet @ Boulder Theater

Charlie Hunter's going indie with his first self-release, Baboon Strength, in a career spanning 18 years, 14 albums, a dozen side projects and a zillion miles on the road performing live! Though he continues this tradition on Baboon Strength, the record is an absolute progression from his previous albums. The music has an electronic feel to it yet the tone is undeniably playful. Charlie Hunter continues to astound audiences with his prodigious and unique ability to play both guitar and bass lines simultaneously.

Born of hippie parents, blah blah blah. Grew up poor, yadda yadda yadda. Eight-string guitar, whoopee shit. Sure, the eight-string thing is cool—if not a little demented—and the reason we all know who he is, but it only reflects Charlie Hunter the craftsman. But what's really most notable about Charlie Hunter is the force behind the craft; the drive that causes him to do the improbable; his raison de rock.
