Brooklyn, NY: Guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter will be camping out in Williamsburg this August, playing four consecutive Sundays at Rose Live Music on Grand Street. The Rose residency is being presented by NYC‚s energetic progressive jazz promoters at Search And Restore, in conjunction with the ‚Brooklyn Experiments‚ series, which normally holds down Sunday nights at Rose.

And the experiments look to prove particularly fruitful in Brooklyn this August. In addition to performing material from his latest release ‚Baboon Strength‚ (with keyboardist Erik Deutsch and drummer Tony Mason), Hunter will take this opportunity to premiere new music written for his upcoming album before stepping into the studio on September 1st and 2nd.

Hunter, who is known for laying down simultaneous bass lines, rhythm, and lead guitar on custom seven- and eight-string Frankenstein guitars, will play three consecutive dates in duo form, featuring a different drummer each week (Tony Mason on August 9, Bobby Previte August 16, and Adam Cruz August 23). The fourth and final show on August 30 is set to be a blowout, with Eric Kalb on drums, and adding a full brass section composed of edgy Brooklynites Eric Biondo (trumpet), Curtis Fowlkes (trombone), and Alan Ferber (trombone). And one can only begin to imagine the cast of surprise guests that will be dropping by all month.
