Charlie Hunter/Bobby Previte @ Jazz Standard 4/28/11

It was awesome of course. Bobby Previte is amazing. I love Charlie on the 7-string guitar. It was so much fun!

Eric Kalb – drums (4/30)
Shawn Pelton – drums (5/1)

From his seven–string instrument to album titles like Gentlemen, I Neglected To Inform You, You Will Not Be Getting Paid, Charlie Hunter has always “traveled to the beat of a different drum.” This week, the virtuoso guitarist will perform in a series of duos accompanied by four of the top percussionists on the contemporary scene. Bobby Previte moved to New York City in 1979, has since worked with everyone from John Medeski to William Shatner and “can break your heart with one cymbal crash.” (The Village Voice) A creative force on the international jazz scene for the last two decades, Adam Cruz “pairs flawless technique and a crystalline touch with a level of prophetic intuition that is awe-inspiring!” (Modern Drummer) With his mastery of a deep groove “pocket,” Eric Kalb has recorded with John Scofield and Melvin Sparks, among others. Millions of television viewers have heard Shawn Pelton’s powerhouse drumming with the “Saturday Night Live” band, in which he’s played a key role since 1992. Don’t miss this “drummer’s delight” weekend with Charlie Hunter at Jazz Standard
