On his fifth release, eight-string guitar virtuoso Charlie Hunter drops the horn section. Joined by long-standing drummer Scott Amendola, and new additions Stefon Harris on vibes and John Santos on percussion, Hunter unleashes a series of 13 groove-heavy numbers, including a cover of Steve Miller's "Fly Like an Eagle." The rhythm section is strong and Hunter's playing is masterful as always. Nevertheless, the individual tracks have a tendency to blur into one another due to the somewhat homogeneous sound of the vibraphone. It's a good effort, though not his best. --Percy Keegan

on this quartet release, it's hunter on 8-string guitar, his much hyped labelmate stefon harris on vibes, john santos playing percussion, and scott amendola on drums. charlie hunter went to a new level on return of the candyman. it's a strange combination of instruments for today's ears, and it is usually quite refreshing. plus, hunter's solos are much stronger than in the past, his playing is deeper, and his style is less restricted. it's every bit as funky as his previous albums, but the jazz licks he plays on this one are way better. the addition of a vibes makes the music sound much more spatial, even graceful at times, and, more importantly, gives hunter more of a chance to be a guitar player. check out that horrible album cover too. creepy!

Wow, this album is really cool. Charlie Hunter is an amazin player. I don't know why everybody's talking about the vibes; I think they're great!

This is one of those albums that defines the feeling of "cool", "where it's at, daddy". Pop on this CD and turn your living room into a jazz nightclub for 13 groovy songs.

This is a decent cd, but I was much more impressed by the albums Charlie Hunter and Duo.
As previous reviewers have noted, yes, there are a lot of vibes. If you don't like vibes, you might not dig this album. There is nothing wrong with the way they were recorded.
Some of the things I didn't like were the cover of Fly like an Eagle, which I find semi-tolerable as a pop song and annoying as a jazz tune. Also there are some really cool jams that meld together, one of which I think was based on a tribe called quest song, but they are too short! Charlie should have spent more time grooving on this album, and less time covering Steve Miller songs.

Okay, first listen it's elevator music, pure and simple. Vibes? Them are those geeky things they made me do in high school, right? Yep, the modern reaction to vibes is like takin a sip of mescaline after walking the desert for weeks. Goddamn it hurts, but take a few more sips and you are flyin...
This album is a stunning departure for Hunter. While you can't complain about any earlier stuff, it was definitely time to groove with a new sound. And Stefon Harris' vibes are the perfect move.
Yeah okay vibes do not mix with modern musical sensibilities. Vibes are like throwing out your G3 and stickin that Underwood back on your desk. My advice: do it. My Underwood never crashes. And Harris' vibes are so cool, so subtle, so sublime and rhythmic that you cannot resist. This is music that does not crash. This is music that flys and soars and moves you to new areas you have not enjoyed before.
Less funky than Hunter's earlier stuff, this album is melodic and musical, with Hunter and Harris playing off one another with stunning vitality. Stick some headphones on and listen to the harmonies. Amazing.
I guarantee, upon first listen this album will suck. But the best albums always do, because they are challenging you. This album has some new sounds, some new sensibilities. Believe me, they will grow on you. And this album will not leave your player for a long, long time.
