[FUNKY JAZZ] One morning 20 years ago, drummer Scott Amendola got an urgent phone call from fellow young Bay Area jazz star Charlie Hunter, who unexpectedly needed a drummer for a gig that night. The pair clicked so well that they’ve been playing together ever since, as their respective reputations have soared to the pinnacle among jazzers who incorporate funk and rock influences. Their laid-back new album of Amendola compositions, Pucker, follows last year’s all-Hunter-written duo disc, and offers a surprising variety of funk- and rock-infused tempos and moods, with more welcome breathing space than many similarly virtuosic players are willing to grant.
