Charlie Hunter and Scott Amendola -][- Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead –Mp3– [Baboon Strength, 2012] –

Charlie Hunter and Scott Amendola, Not Getting Behind is The New Getting Ahead

Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead, guitarist Charlie Hunter’s new duo recording with drummer Scott Amendola, is an album that’s easy to get behind. A complete departure from last year’s Public Domain —a true solo album — and the previous year’s Gentlemen, I Neglected to Inform You You Will Not Be Getting Paid — which incorporated two trombones and trumpet into Hunter’s instrumental arsenal — Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead is Hunter’s first recording of original compositions in three years.

It’s also, perhaps, his most candid and forthright set of songs ever. Recorded with Hunter and Amendola playing in the same room simultaneously — an old-school recording method that has been virtually lost in today’s cut-and-paste world — Not Getting Behind Is The New Getting Ahead was written by Hunter while at home, inspired by his touring.

“I love the nooks and crannies of the U.S., and this album is for the people living in these places.”
