8-string guitar-bass hero Charlie Hunter has announced on his website the release of a limited edition CD featuring a duo with jazz drummer Bobby Previte, titled Come in Red Dog, This is Tango Leader. The disc is a limited edition and will only be available from "select online and retail stores," including this one. The price is $9.99, and shipping via Charlie's site is $3.06. Be careful who you buy it through - RopeADope Records also offers it but only provides expensive FedEx shipping. In other Hunter news, Ice Magazine also reports a new T. J. Kirk album being available next Tuesday, Talking Only Makes It Worse. I can't find a shred of information to back it up - anyone else know anything?
Hunter's Duo with drummer Leon Parker is one of my favorite albums of his. Stripping it down to just his intriguing 8-string guitar and Parker's drums allows both more space to move and play. This offering with Previte should be equally fun. And yes, this is likely really limited. A previous "limited edition" of his solo album, 8 String Guitar sold out quickly - and stayed that way. Jump on this if you're interested. If it somehow turns out to disappoint you, it's doubtful you won't be able to pass it off to someone else for what you paid - or more.
