  5. TJ Kirk: If Four Was One

    I don't know how many people are into Charlie Hunter's music, which is often quite funky in a soul jazz type of way, featuring Charlie's unique sound on his hybrid 8 string guitar/bass, which sounds more like an organ when he plays it through a Leslie (I assume) In any event,this 1996 CD by TJ Kirk, a cooperative effort rather than a "Charlie Hunter project" holds up really well, and I would recommend it to anyone who digs organ trios and funk. Here's a portion of the AMG review> The idea of three guitarists and a drummer who play the music of Thelonious Monk, James Brown andRahsaan Roland Kirk may seem odd or limiting, but the musicianship of the players in question has produced an album that explicitly explores the connections between the compositions of these three legendary musicians while raising the stakes in the debate about what is and isn't "jazz." Scott Amendola's drumming is precisely funky throughout, and Charlie Hunter's 8-string guitar supplies both the punchy basslines and the heavily chorused chords that Will Bernard and Will Schott build upon, resulting in a tightly rendered "The Payback," a stirring version of the eternal "Ruby, My Dear" and the multiple tempos and timbres of "Brake's Sake."
