Guitarist Charlie Hunter and drummer Scott Amendola have made a habit out of closing out the year at Kuumbwa, and we’re so glad they have. 2013 saw the release of Pucker, an album of Amendola’s compositions, but recently the duo has been rolling out their latest project — a series of four duo EPs featuring tributes to The Cars, Cole Porter, Hank Williams and Duke Ellington.

$23/Adv $26/Door Doors at 8:30 PM Sponsored by The Offbeats “…improvisers plying new genre-less waters…” – San Jose Mercury Seven-string guitar master Charlie Hunter has been playing with drummer Scott Amendola since the 1990s, when they were two-thirds of the acclaimed jam-band-meets-jazz Charlie Hunter Trio. Following up on their duo release Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead, the two just released Pucker, a lean and sinewy session marked by fierce grooves, caressing melodies, and startlingly intuitive interplay. This type of musical partnership, constantly growing and evolving, is best experienced onstage.
