Guitarist Charlie Hunter is a musician on a journey. Never to be satisfied with a ravishingly successful recording career spanning 17 albums, he has continued to explore his own musical tastes, following the currents of his musical self. Continuing the evolution of his style and sound, Public Domain is Charlie Hunter's solo take on 11 bona fide classic tunes that have been around long enough for their copyrights, but not their charms, to have expired. His first solo album in 10 years, the material chosen for Public Domain, all of it close to Hunter's heart, is woven into the fabric of our collective cultural history. Since the debut of Charlie Hunter Trio in '93, Hunter has recorded 17 albums and worked with Miles Perkins, Les Claypool, John Ellis, Bobby Previte, Leon Parker, Mos Def, Norah Jones, Adam Cruz, and John Mayer to name just a few.
