    Music!Music!Music! Is Out Now!

    Music!Music!Music! releases today!

    An exhilarating blast of blues, soul and funk, Music!Music!Music! marks the recorded debut of the musical partnership between guitarist Charlie Hunter and vocalist Lucy Woodward. Recorded in High Point, North Carolina, with longtime Hunter collaborator Derrek Phillips on the drums, Music!Music!Music! showcases the dazzling interplay between Hunter’s funky guitar and Woodward’s stunning voice, while also beautifully capturing the spontaneity and good vibes of the duo’s live performances.

    The album’s eleven tracks range from the old-world blues of Blind Willie Johnson (“Soul of a Man”) and Bessie Smith (“You’ve Been a Good Ole Wagon”) to the tormented soul of Nina Simone (“Plain Gold Ring,” “Be My Husband,” and the immortal “Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood”), from jazz standards (“Angel Eyes” and “Music! Music! Music!,” popularized by Ella Fitzgerald and Teresa Brewer, respectively) to bluegrass and alt-country classics (Hazel Dickens and Alice Gerrard’s “The One I Love Is Gone,” Lucinda Williams’ “Can’t Let Go”), from the smoky Fifties R&B of Ruth Brown’s “I Don’t Know” to the technicolor Eighties funk of Terence Trent D’Arby’s “Wishing Well.” “We’d already worked out all the arrangements and grooves during our tours together,” says Woodward of the album. “We sort of planned for this all year, found the right time to do it — and pressed ‘record’!”

    Soulful, spacious and deliciously in the pocket, Music!Music!Music! reverberates with the thrilling intensity of the duo’s live shows, and crackles with the electricity of two talented performers stretching out together from their respective comfort zones. “It was just fun, man,” says Hunter of the recording sessions. “I’ve done so many records in my lifetime, everything from jazz to working with hip-hop people, really avant-garde stuff — but this is the first record I’ve ever done that is really a partnership with a singer. I’m really happy with how it came out.”

    Update on Silvana Estrada

    Update on Silvana Estrada

    Hey All,

    It is with a heavy heart that I bring you the news that due to her visa being denied, Silvana Estrada will not be able to join us this December on the west coast.

    According to our lawyers, who incidentally have a 99% success rate with these petitions, Silvana should have been a slam dunk. We applied for a P3 or “unique cultural performer”visa. We had 5 esteemed professionals attest to her talents and uniqueness at length. Still she was denied.

    She has an extensive amount of video on social media where she is playing...uniquely Mexican music. She made a great record which is on Spotify at the moment with another to be released In February.

    All we wanted to do was put this really great music in front of people.

    Again, we did all we could and I am sorry we won’t be able to play for you.

    Mostly I am sorry for Silvana who worked her ass off and jumped through every flaming hoop put in front of her.
    She should’ve been a slam dunk for this visa . The reason given was that we couldn’t prove that she was “culturally unique” enough to qualify for the visa. Please listen to her record on Spotify and tell me what you think.

    I will still be playing the gigs we have booked with Carter Mclean and we are lucky enough to have Rob Dixon on tenor saxophone as well.

    Yours in the brotherhood-sisterhood of music and culture.
