“The judges at Global Music Awards fell in love with the music of Charles Unger the moment his sound popped out of our speakers. His sound is rich, textured and authentic having been honed by a life-time of jazz love and performance. Unger is the real deal! It’s easy to go to that dreamy place while listening to his music. He is the heart and soul of American jazz.” Thomas Baker, Ph.D., Founder, Global Music Awards

In the Recording Studio!



For the upcoming Kickstarted album "Around the World," we recently had our first recording session  at STUDIO 132 in Oakland with engineer and owner B.Z. Lewis (six-time Emmy Award winner) and recorded four songs: New Orleans, Paradise, Rio Nights and Swedish Sunset. Very excited! So thankful to all my generous backers and to  my great fellow musicians: Ben Louis, bass; Tony Coleman; drums and Sue Crosman, piano, who also play with me on Wednesday evenings at Les Joulins Jazz Bistro.  Next session is coming up soon when we'll do some more recording, which will include the "Song for Nelson" and "Just Another Day in LA!" Stay tuned!
 

Thank you wonderful backers!
