Dazzle is delighted to welcome back one of our favorite musicians, guitarist Charlie Hunter. His music always conveys a strong sense of joy, exploration, and connectedness with his fellow musicians. He’s bringing back the same trio project that he toured in 2018 with Lucy Woodward, but this time Doug Belote will be on the drums. They went into the studio after that tour and have created an album entitled Music! Music! Music! It’s out now, go listen!
An exhilarating blast of blues, soul and funk, Music!Music!Music! marks the recorded debut of the musical partnership between guitarist Charlie Hunter and vocalist Lucy Woodward. Recorded in High Point, North Carolina, with longtime Hunter collaborator Derrek Phillips on the drums, Music!Music!Music! showcases the dazzling interplay between Hunter’s funky guitar and Woodward’s stunning voice, while also beautifully capturing the spontaneity and good vibes of the duo’s live performances.
The album’s eleven tracks range from the old-world blues of Blind Willie Johnson (“Soul of a Man”) and Bessie Smith (“You’ve Been a Good Ole Wagon”) to the tormented soul of Nina Simone (“Plain Gold Ring,” “Be My Husband,” and the immortal “Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”), from jazz standards (“Angel Eyes” and “Music! Music! Music!,” popularized by Ella Fitzgerald and Teresa Brewer, respectively) to bluegrass and alt-country classics (Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard’s “The One I Love Is Gone,” Lucinda Williams’ “Can’t Let Go”), from the smoky Fifties R&B of Ruth Brown’s “I Don’t Know” to the technicolor Eighties funk of Terence Trent D’Arby’s “Wishing Well.” “We’d already worked out all the arrangements and grooves during our tours together,” says Woodward of the album. “We sort of planned for this all year, found the right time to do it — and pressed ‘record’!”
