A Must Buy!!!

This album just shows the endless capabilities of Charlie Hunter to keep writing head bobbing, mind altering, and groove killing tunes. This album not only takes on the musical genius of Keyboardist Eric Deutch much like Mystico, but Charlie uncovers new realms of tight funk grooves that stick with you throughout the day. Tony Mason is right there with his in the pocket backbeats. There is great chemistry in this trio and if you have not had a chance to check them out live yet I highly recommend you do!!!! Charlie is definitely one of those artists that keeps it real, is under rated and plays for himself not the tabloids. If you are new to Charlie I highly recommend to start from the beginning of his collection and go forward.

I have all his albums, and I must say that this is right up there with Songs From the Analog Playground and his self titled album as my favorites. Also good to check out is Return of the Candyman.
