NIMA Presents: Steve Hunter Trio @ The Underground

Grand Hotel
Tuesday, 12 September 2017

Steve Hunter is a virtuoso bassist, prolific composer, and band leader. While living extensively overseas Hunter established an enviable international career playing with Billy Cobham, Chick Corea, Ulf Wakenius, Jon Mark and Bobby Previte’s ‘Bitches Brew Project’ and has appeared on around fifty albums. In Australia, Hunter has played and recorded with many of the countries greatest musicians and has won, or been a final nominee, for several major Australian music awards for compositions released on his and other artists’ albums.

Steve strives for the music to reflect the composition and playing styles of the band, writing for and encouraging the input of the individual musicians to create something much more than the sum of its parts. “I like to write in all different kinds of ways; from very structured and notated through to sketches with virtually nothing on the music page. Consequently the music is carried on the strength of the ‘voices’ of the players rather than on a singular idiomatic compositional style.” To all this Hunter provides cohesion, his warm, full and authoritative bass providing a clear voice of direction, giving foundation and grounding for the adventurous music that has grown from the roots and influences of Miles Davis, Weather Report and Chick Corea.
Hunter’s bass solo improvisations are famous and always an anticipated joy.
