It is such a joy to able to finally, after nearly four years of waiting, share this music with the world. Charlie Hunter Trio Live At The Memphis Music Mansion was recorded in October of 2017 during a three night run in my hometown, Memphis and came on the heels of two prior tours together, so we were firing on all cylinders that weekend. Unfortunately, the very first night of the shows, Charlie and I contracted food poisoning and were sick as dogs… Michael Blake got it the following day and was also very ill, the record was shelved because we felt like we all played badly. But time has a way of healing the past, somehow and when Charlie called me one afternoon to tell me he’d been listening to the recordings from those gigs and decided they weren’t as awful as he’d remembered and that he was going to release an albums worth of songs, I was elated.
My dear friend Chad Anderson was hired to do the cover art and I’d say he did an amazing job of capturing the three of us in action. Thank you, brother!
The album can be found here.
