With a career spanning 16 years and 20 albums, Charlie Hunter consistently ups his game as an innovative writer, imaginative bandleader, and all-around great guitarist. He has worked with the likes of Norah Jones, Mos Def, John Mayer and D’Angelo, and is widely considered the authority on the seven- and eight-string guitar. Continuing to stun audiences with his ability to simultaneously bust out tasty bass parts, melodic leads and swinging rhythms, Hunter has recorded for the venerable Blue Note label, as well as Concord, Ropeadope and GroundUP. While critics tout his genius technique, it’s a profound artistic sensibility that propels his original music. His trio’s current line-up includes long-time drummer Carter McLean and Mexican prodigy Silvana Estrada. Only 19, Silvana has already been recognized as one of the most gifted young artists in Mexican music today. A vocalist, guitarist and songwriter, her style combines American influences, the mainstream song, or son jarocho tradition, and Mexican popular music of the 1920’s, creating a uniquely rich mix, full of colors and stories that ride the edge between tradition and modernity. Involved in the local music community since childhood, Silvana studied jazz at University of Veracruz and has since performed alongside some of the biggest names in Mexican jazz, from Antonio Sánchez, to Juan Pablo Vega, to Iraida Noriega and David Aguilar.
