To quote one of my favorite critics about Charlie Hunter's performance at the Jazz Fest a few years ago: "He's good. Hell, he's great — but entirely too technical for me. I mean, would hitting one wrong note really kill you?" Hunter hits a lot of notes as his guitars are customized with seven and even eight strings which the master evokes bass, lead, and rhythm passages simultaneously. And you oughta — rather gotta — hear him play through a Leslie. A guitar monster.
