“With each successive release, Hunter is becoming more and more of a consummate jazzman, creating intricate pieces that are fresh, exciting and especially appealling for folks who aren’t normally into jazz. All of the songs on …Shango! have a warmth to them that sounds as if they were recorded in someone’s living room… Don’t be fooled, however; this isn’t smooth coffee-talk jazz, it’s got a creative vitality that demands attention.”
– Megan Frampton, CMJ

The Village Voice
By Francis Davis

“The Charlie Hunter Trio’s Friends Seen and Unseen is lean and slyly funky, with Hunter creating the illusion of a Hammond B3 here and there. The speed of Hunter’s chords gives drummer Derrek Phillips plenty of room to thrash around, and his New Orleans parade rhythms are especially bracing on the slinky “Lulu’s Crawl,” where tenorist John Ellis (who elsewhere occasionally switches to bass clarinet or flute) slap-tongues to telling effect, a fine companion to Hunter’s wah-wah. Not surprisingly for a guitarist who got his start behind Michael Franti in the Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy and made his first big splash with a Nirvana cover, Hunter takes advantage of echo and feedback and other rock devices. But not even the staunchest conservative could deny that he plays jazz. In its uninsistent […]

“A gutbucket marvel”
-Billboard

“The most intriguing ensemble of the season,”(New Yorker) “is not only all-star, but fascinatingly so.” – Village Voice.

“In his work with John Zorn and in his own band, Barondown, it is drummer Joey baron’s deep sense of groove and greasy funk that lends weight to his witty dances with chaos. On “Down Home,” Baron flips the coin and brings his Southern roots to the fore, with eight melodic, soul-jazz tunes full of groove. At first, it sounds very familiar – the bluesy alto, the chunking rhythm guitar, the James Brown vamps. Not to worry, Baron’s humor and weirdness aren’t gone, just shifted to the background. What sounds at first like another typical jam proves to be in a non-standard time signature: James Brown with the hiccups. […]

“Is there anything Joey Baron can’t do? Put a tricky chart in front of him, and he’ll clarify complicated passages like a great actor doing Shakespeare. Turn him loose on simpler forms, and his witty phrasing and impossibly deep groove will make you smile almost as widely as he does whenever he’s seated at the kit. The latter is the case on We’ll Soon Find Out, Baron’s second release with his Down Home quartet. The tunes – all capably written by the drummer – are a friendly mixture of boogaloo, latin jazz, swing, and ballads, without an avant-garde honker in the batch. And though the CD is chock-full of delicious, sprightly drumming, Baron knows when to step back and let his “sidemen” do […]

BOSTON GLOBE
by Tristram Lozaw

“Solo albums by sidemen are notoriously hodgepodge affairs. Not so with Viktor Krauss’s debut. Krauss has helped Lyle Lovett, Bill Frisell, Elvis Costello, the Cox Family, and dozens more redefine bluegrass, jazz, rock, and Americana styles. Now the bassist-composer brother of Grammy-laden singer Alison Krauss has his own all-star band and his own shimmering gem of a CD. The largely instrumental album’s modern roots-music hybrids and wide-open sound yield some of the dreamiest passages since Daniel Lanois’s 1989 classic “Acadie.” As he has for countless others, Krauss contributes the intuitive craft and resonant beauty of his upright bass work. And as bandleader, he balances a melodic ease with the roughened grind of funky chops, pushing his crack crew — guitarist Frisell, drummer Steve Jordan, dobro master Jerry Douglas on steel […]

TIME OUT NEW YORK
By Steve Smith

“One nice thing about being an in-demand session musician: You’ve got all the right names and numbers in your Rolodex. Viktor Krauss, an Illinois-born bass player who currently resides in Nashville, has recorded and toured with Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello, Chet Atkins and Jewel. On his own debut album, 2004’s Far from Enough, he enlisted two of his employers, guitarists Bill Frisell and Jerry Douglas; hotshot drummer Steve Jordan completed the band, and […]
