Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Hunter, Charlie - Natty Dread Natty Dread
Jazz New - LP 54240 Blue Note
1997 Vinyl Rarity. New Unplayed, But Not Sealed. We Just Located Three Mint Copies Of This Hard To Find Album Which Features Nine Unique Track-For-Track Jazz Interpretations Of Bob Marley's 1974 Album "Natty Dread." Hunter, 8-String Guitar; Calder Spanier, Alto Saxophone; Kenny Brooks, Tenor Saxophone And Scott Amendola, Drums. His Prodigious Talent Allows Hunter To Play Simultaneous Melodies And Bass Lines As Well As His Simulation Of A Wurlitzer Organ! Throughout The Album, Reggae Is Implied Rather Than Played With Fine Solos Turned In From Each Member Of The Group. Calder Spanier Was Struck By A Car And Died Shortly After This Album Was Made And Hunter Moved From His Native San Francisco To New York And Restructured His Band, Leaving Us To Ponder What Might Have Been.... more details
 
Hunter, Charlie - Gentlemen, I Neglected To Inform You You Will Not Be Getting Paid Gentlemen, I Neglected To Inform You You Will Not Be Getting Paid
Pop New - LP 614062750843 CHT Music
Sealed 2010 Original. “Charlie Hunter Is A Restless Musician. It Seems Like He Doesn't Go More Than An Album Or Two Before He Finds A New Setting For Himself. And So It Is With Gentlemen, I Neglected To Inform You You Will Not Be Getting Paid, Where He Changes Drummers Yet Again And Swaps Keyboards For Two Trombones And A Trumpet. But The Horns Aren't Really There As Front-Line Players Competing With Hunter. They Get A Few Solos Here And There But They're Mostly Employed As An Old-School R&B Horn Section, Used For Color And Embellishment. In Fact, They Sit Out Completely For Long Stretches On The Tunes, Leaving Plenty Of Space For Hunter's Amazing Playing. With The Horns Out Of The Way And Just Drummer Eric Kalb Supporting, It's Difficult To Fathom How Hunter Accounts For The Rest Of The Music In Real Time. It's Not Just That He's Playing Basslines And Leads Simultaneously; It's The Way They Play Against Each Other Rhythmically. It's Hard To Believe That Only One Brain And Two Hands Can Pull It Off. Highlights Include The New Orleans Shuffle Of "Antoine" And The Uptempo Title Track. The Horns Get Some Room On "High Pockets And A Fanny Pack" And "Drop A Dime," While "You Look So Good In Orange" Has Such A Classic Soul Feel You Can Almost Hear It Being Sung By Someone From The Hi Records Roster (It'll Need Lyrics First, But Still). Overall, Another Rock-Solid Outing From Charlie Hunter. The One Thing That Sets This Album Apart From All His Others, Though? This Album Was Recorded "In Glorious Mono" (Presumably So It Sounds Great On AM Radio In Your Car). Turn It Up.” Sean Westergaard, AMG.... more details
