Since reuniting to tour and record as a power duo in 2010, New Jersey’s seven-string guitar wizard Charlie Hunter and Berkeley’s drummer extraordinaire Scott Amendola have covered many thousands of miles on the road and released two acclaimed albums: 2012’s recession-inspired "Not Getting Behind is the New Getting Ahead" and 2013’s "Pucker." The duo recently rolled out four thematic 5-song digital EPs on iTunes Exploring Music By Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Hank Williams, and The Cars. Amendola and Hunter first played together two decades ago when Hunter was a rising star on the Bay Area acid jazz scene and Amendola was a recent arrival from the East Coast. “It’s always s been amazing whenever we play, but it keeps growing, getting more intuitive,” Amendola says. “What Charlie does is so uncanny. When you watch him play, it’s hard to understand what he’s doing, but when you close your eyes it’s so beautiful and deep and compelling.”
