Charlie Hunter really deserves his own category because he has had to actually invent guitars to match his vision. When the Berkeley-High-School graduate emerged on San Francisco stages in the 1990s using an 8-string guitar on which he simultaneously played bass, chords and leads, he seemed almost freakish, but that impression was quickly tempered by a profound musicality that brought him deep respect on the international scene.

Now, having released close to 40 albums either as a leader or sideman, he's reuniting with longtime musical companion, drummer Scott Amendola โ€“ also a product of the '90s Bay Area jazz-funk ferment โ€“ for a show with a new addition: cornetist Kirk Knuffke, who has rocketed to the top of the New York scene thanks to an ear-turning style that is distinctly 21st century while drawing on the frenetic power of the be-boppers. The diverse stylistic DNA of these three players makes them highly suited to their plan for the Spoonbar โ€“ exploring the music of Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Hank Williams, the Cars, and others. The audience will have to strap in for this one.
