5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for all times of the year 11 Feb 2001
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD without ever having heard of the Charlie Hunter Trio. It's now my most played CD. My favourite is the version of Come As You Are, when the sax kicks off about halfway through I get tingles down my spine and wish I'd learned to play sax years ago. It's mid-winter here and yet this CD seems to bring in warm sunlight. Buy it and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crazy title - crazy record! 6 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD
I fondly remember ordering this crazy record on import shortly after it came out, and then waiting, and waiting, and waiting... You get the idea. When it finally pitched up, I was pleased to find that the wait was worth it!

Mr Hunter's first record for the Blue Note label is a truly bold statement of intent - one that the label were proud of at the time (having been relaunched); the opener 'Greasy Granny' featuring on a number of contemporary jazz samplers at the time. The tempo is consistently up throughout. Standouts for me include the tour de force cover of 'Come as you are' and the marvelous 'Fistful of haggis'. Throughout the Trio's playing is consistently hot. Mr Hunter sure brings out the very best in his side men.

This a really cool Trio set and one that I'd recommend to all curmudgeons who have a modern jazz leaning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wore that CD out... 9 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those smokin albums, so full of detail and expression that you have to listen to again and again to gain every innuendo, every element and to truly understand the meaning of what the players are doing.
I dunno if I dig this album being stuck in "acid jazz"; I kinda agree more with Charlie Hunter himself who has resisted that category by labelling his style "antacid jazz". Whatever, for me personally Hunter and his various troupes over time have built the bridge for me to escape the single-minded torments of pop and rock to enter the exciting, vivacious, ever-changing realm of modern jazz.
Groovy to the max, funky out the door, always exciting and always involving, Charlie Hunter and his gang are the peak of modern jazz for young-minded folks. Hell, you know that if the young folks are buggin the old fogies, them be the young folks to hang with. Isn't it ironic then that Hunter and buddies tend to worship the work of the old school (Colemen, Mingus, et al.)?
This album in particular is a tremendous example of the Hunter groove. Rawer than some of the newer albums, and less produced, it has some great loose moments and some amazing horn work from Dave Ellis. Make sure you sit down for this one; otherwise you may find yourself shakin that booty in ways you never imagined you could.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different and Good 30 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I picked up this album after reading numerous reviews, labeling Charlie Hunter as the most innovative jazz guitarist imerging in recent years. The first time I listened, I enjoyed it and could appreciate the groove, it sounded like a decent quartet. But then I remembered, Charlie Hunter is the 8-string master and was simultaneously playing the addictive bass lines, as well as churning the organ sounding chord changes. With the melodic stylings of tenor, Dave Ellis, I immediately became a huge Charlie Hunter fan. With every listen, one will pick up on the intricate nuances of Hunter's style. A must have for a any guitar player or jazz head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Note revival 4 Oct 2000
By Steven Clem Haley - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This was my intro to Charlie Hunter and I have to admit it took some time to grow on me. Yeah, Charlie is great, enough can't be said about him. But to me the highlight if this cd is Dave Ellis on Sax. Ties in with Sonny Rollins and Cannonball Adderly. And Jay Lane! Where did you come from my man? As far as I'm concerned, this trio could have stayed together for a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groovy Grooves and Soulful Sounds! 3 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
If you haven't yet experienced the "Hunter touch", get ready. If Charlie and his trio don't get your toes tappin nothing will. His very eclectic and unique guitar/bass playing is phenomenal as his thumb grooves through the rhythms underneath a wonderous array of strumming. Support is good from Jay Lane, whose straight-forward approach to drumming, is not to be overshadowed by the oh-so-familiar "overabundance" common in today's pop music. Provides for a smooth entry into the funk/jazz arena.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Charlie Hunter to own 8 Feb 2003
By Eliot B. Muir - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Year after year, this CD finds a place in the household rotation. Sad to say, but that's not the case for the other C. Hunter CDs we own. This one grooves and moves, and yet it settles all around with a supreme subtlety. It's Charlie Hunter's one bottom line statement that he belongs. It's not quite at that level of must have/essential CD, but it offers hope that one day Charlie will deliver on his exceptional promise. And it's an incredibly solid outing, worthy of praise and many reissues down the road.
