A 12 track pop album (53m 50s) — released November 7th 2005 on Thirsty Ear Recordings
SALES POINTS: Longitude -The exciting second entry into a very special trilogy of recordings for the Blue Series. - Each album is made special with the addition of a different guest, so that each recording documents a fresh and unique trio. - This is an ongoing collaboration between Charlie Hunter and Bobby Previte, two unique and formidable musicians with reputations that precede them. Unique trio? - Following a string of remarkably diverse recordings for the Blue Note label, Charlie Hunter has become a free agent of sorts over the past few years. A world-class master of his custom-made 8-string guitar, playing bass lines, chords and melodies simultaneously (three bass strings, five guitar strings) - Bobby Previte (Palmetto Records/ Gramavision/Enja) is a drummer, composer and leader who has gained great critical recognition for all facets of his musicianship. - Dj Logic (Jason Kibler) is a true pioneer of the expressive possibilities of the turntable having produced his own material (The Anomaly) and has also brought his magic into works of other seminal musicians like Medeski, Martin and Wood, John Scofield, and Joshua Redma & Uri Caine. Result: This team-up brings a real, earthy and energetic performance that will appeal to jazz, funk and electronic enthusiasts alike. Their trademark sound of electronic riffing reverberates a dynamic tension throughout the album. Charlie Hunter's playing is far reaching on both sides, hitting soaring highs and rumbling lows with ease, leaving the listener to ask 'How'd he do that ''. Bobby Previte's drumming is just as impressive. His percussion work is like a tropical storm, thunderous and electric . DJLogic provides the essential background to Hunter and Previte's mind-bending creation. What you hear is played 99% live ... and 100% improvised. Longitute is a great omen of what is to come in the last of the trilogy? Marketing & Promotion - FULL PRESS PROMOTION?
