Charlie Hunter Trio
The Wright Opera House is proud to present an intimate performance by world renowned musician and improvisational master Charlie Hunter and his trio on May 4th at 7:00pm. Charlie has a unique jazz funk style playing on a custom seven string guitar where he plays bass lines, chords, and solos all at the same time.
Charlie Hunter began his musical journey in the Bay Area jazz scene in the early 90’s and has continued to reinvent his sound and style through the years. He has recorded nineteen albums as a leader including his latest effort Everybody Has A Plan Until They Get Punched in the Mouth released in 2016 on the GroundUp label. Charlie has also been a member of some of the country’s leading avant garde jazz community including being a founding member of the groundbreaking Garage A Trois.
Charlie has been said to play with “freakish virtuosity” and “100% live groove and vibe, no added artificial ingredients, and no mixing” and his live performances can range from upbeat standards to dark and sultry slow melodies. Whatever the song Charlie brings a fresh new approach and one of a kind interpretation to everything he plays.
