Charlie Hunter August Residency - Four Intimate Shows at Rose Live Music


Sign in to view read count
BROOKLYN, NY -- Guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter will be camping out in Williamsburg this August, playing four consecutive Sundays at the intimate ROSE LIVE MUSIC space on Grand Street. The Rose residency is being presented by NYC’s energetic progressive jazz promoters at SEARCH AND RESTORE, in conjunction with the “BROOKLYN EXPERIMENTS” series, which regularly holds down Sunday nights at Rose.

And the experiments look to prove particularly fruitful in Brooklyn this August. In addition to performing material from his latest release BABOON STRENGTH (with keyboardist ERIK DEUTSCH and drummer TONY MASON), Hunter will take this opportunity to premiere new music written for his upcoming album before stepping into the studio on September 1st and 2nd.

Hunter, who is known for laying down simultaneous bass lines, rhythm, and lead guitar on custom seven- and eight-string mutant guitars, will play three consecutive dates in duo form, featuring a different drummer each week (TONY MASON on August 9, Bobby Previte August 16, and Adam Cruz August 23). The fourth and final show on August 30 is set to be a blowout, with ERIC KALB on drums, plus a full brass section composed of edgy jazz pioneers ERIC BIONDO (trumpet), Curtis Fowlkes (trombone), and Alan Ferber (trombone). And one can only begin to imagine the cast of surprise guests that will be dropping by all month.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
