Charlie Hunter’s latest and greatest

In which we find guitar innovator Charlie Hunter on a loose and chill flight with drummer Eric Kalb and a smart brass section. I’d love to hear the story behind the title of this album – “Gentlemen, I Neglected To Inform You You Will Not Be Getting Paid” – but it’s not hard to imagine the many comical scenarios where one in the music business might hear those words. I’ve enjoyed Hunter’s playing since the early 80’s, and to this day, he never stops evolving and reaching for new musical horizons more wondrous than the last. In this unhurried, sparse track, you get a sense of the humor and light that have always been a part of Charlie’s art and heart. The legendary chops are but a vehicle. This is an artist who has fun, who loves playing, and that’s why his work is so entertaining.
