Song of the Day - May 5, 2006

I normally do not feature straight instrumentals as the song of the day, however, exceptions must be made from time to time. The time is now for Charlie Hunter's "Cueball Bobbin'," from his recent release Copperopolis. This song is a masterpiece of funky jazz fusion employing rock-like riffs and an irresistible beat that makes preventing dancing an impossibility. This song reminds me of something Jeff Beck might have done with a smidgen of Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein" thrown into the mix. Charlie Hunter's sound can partially be attributed to the fact that he plays an eight string guitar allowing him to play bass lines and melody all on one instrument. John Ellis provides perfect keyboard accompaniment, while Derrick Phillips keeps the funky beat on drums. Click here to listen.
