First Listen: Charlie Hunter: Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched In The Mouth

First Listen is sponsored by Bay Bloor Radio - The Right Sound For the Right Price.

Charlie Hunter's Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched In The Mouth, refers to a quote once uttered by heavyweight boxing champion Iron Mike Tyson, was recorded 100% live in Hudson, New York.

Charlie Hunter returns to his quartet with bandmates Kirk Knuffke (cornet), Bobby Previte (drums), and Curtis Fowlkes (trombone).

The recording has an interesting sound, Charlie on 7-string guitar, taking care of both the chords, bass and soloing along with horns and drums.

Blues is definitely at the heart of this record, as Charlie says:

“My idea for this record was a real improvising blues record and not a modern jazz record,” he says. “All the cues I take from this record are in my way of thinking from the blues more than anything else.”

This is your First Listen Charlie Hunter and Leave Him Lay for July 24th.
