"...his finest album yet ..."
-Josef Woodard,
Entertainment Weekly

"With each successive release, Hunter is becoming more and more of a consummate jazzman, creating intricate pieces that are fresh, exciting and especially appealling for folks who aren't normally into jazz. All of the songs on ...Shango! have a warmth to them that sounds as if they were recorded in someone's living room... Don't be fooled, however; this isn't smooth coffee-talk jazz, it's got a creative vitality that demands attention."
- Megan Frampton, CMJ
