Charlie Hunter's latest album, "Baboon Strength", is his first self-release in a career spanning over 15 years. Critics are hailing it as his most innovative and provocative release to date. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Charlie released and produced this record by himself. To hear about the record in Charlie's own words check out his blog entitled, "Baboon Strength".
