Press Release :
Life is what happens to you while your busy making other plans. and while charlie hunter's other plans have included other bands (most recently including garage-a-trois & groundtruther) other gigs (endless dates as a side-man, studio musician and colloborator) and other formations of his own band (from duo, to quartet to quintet) charlie always fond himself gong back to where it all began - the trio, which, after 15 years as a leader, has finally become his band, the one that's gonna stick together, grow old together. Now together for over 5 years, having toured the world (and beyond) the Charlie Hunter Trio follows up 2003's "Friends Seen and Unseen" with Copperopolis, same 3 guys, but different in one big way - IT ROCKS. literally - "I was just feeling rocky i guess" says the band leader. And the addition of John Ellis' playing both the wurlitzer and melodica opened up alot of space for charlie to simply shred. This is the album fans (and ropeadope) has been calling on for years. pop it in, turn it up and rock it out. and you shall see.
