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!

Charlie Hunter has released a load of albums over the years, dating back to I guess the early 1990’s. I purchased several of those early LPs, but stopped after a few because I didn’t like the heavy use of all the sound affect gadgets or gizmos he seemed to love to incorporate (or I guess I should say – I didn’t like the “sound” to be more precise). I mean if you want the sound of an organ, just add an organist/keyboard player to the session instead of using some gadget on your guitar that gives a very lame, pale sounding imitation of an organ, etc. So, it’s been quite a while since I’ve purchased any C. Hunter CDs, and don’t really know why I decided to pick up this particular old release. However, I am glad I did as this is a nice CD. It doesn’t have all the lame sounding (the organ, in particular) ‘sound affects’ that I remember. It has some sound effects, but very minor and limited in comparison to what I remember on his other old releases that I’ve heard (and I believe the crappy organ sound effect is not used at all). This is just a nice laid back, mellow, sounding CD with a lot more standard, traditional sounding ensemble instrumentation. Overall, very good ensemble playing and some nice vibraphone work throughout. I think I’ve seen statements by others reviewing C. Hunter’s CDs that indicate his music (or sound) is an acquired taste. That is probably a good way to put it – you either acquire or develop a taste for all the guitar sound effect gadgets or not. But you don’t have to worry about that on this particular CD.Read more ›

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.
