The follow up to Copperopolis, the 2007 CD release of Mistico is the first album on Fantasy Records by seven string guitar ace Charlie Hunter. A stunning instrumental blend of groove-based fusion and progressive rock, Mistico features Hunter in trio formation backed up by Erik Deutsch (keyboards) and Simon Lott (drums). Commenting on the subject of jazz tradition, Hunter states, ‘The worst direction is to take that information literally. The best is to deal with your influences—deal with the fact that you’re living in 2007 and reflect that.’ Hunter does all that and more on an album that transcends tradition and comes up with a startling new and inspiring jazz guitar groove.
