It's the end of the year, so this weekend's musical theme? My favorite albums from 2016. My favorite jazz album? Charlie Hunter's new one, "Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched In The Mouth." If you are looking for the bassist, don't bother. Charlie is playing both the bass line and the lead guitar line at the same time on a seven-string contraption with fanned frets. How? By being Charlie Fucking Hunter. That's how.
I still haven't gotten the new ones by Takuya Kuroda or Theo Croker. They should be good too.
