A concert by 7-string guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter. Taught by Joe Satriani as a young student,
Hunter emerged on the Californian scene in the 1990s, making a name with a series of albums on the
Blue Note label. He has recorded 19 albums to date, in various line-ups working with the likes of
Norah Jones, Kurt Elling and Bobby Previte. With an instrument and a fingerpicking technique that
allow him to combine bass lines and melodies, Hunter brings a fresh approach that draws on early
blues, funk as well as jazz. With Scott Amendola on drums.
This one is beautifully recorded in true BBC tradition and now you have an additional track from the recent
'Missing Bits' program.

As always, the intro can be omitted, but hardly worth bothering as it is very short.
The interview that went before had too much official music to be worth including, but Charlie did
explain why his 8-string guitar is now 7-string - he never missed a broken string, LOL !!
