Hopefully this will be the first of many more Darci Monet recordings to come at CAZADOR Recording.

Guitarist/vocalist John Dibattista III and Matt Hanna (bass) were a drummerless alternative rock power trio who came to Jimmy Hunter for his drumming and production assistance in realizing their hard edged music. The result was the Diseased CD. The three put together a deadly sound with screams and moans in the deep background of the track that sound like hell being visited. The music has simplicity yet some subliminal ear candy that is hard to put a finger on why it sounds so dangerous.

Mark R. Kent / Favoritos Tangos Romanticos (by Brazilian Composer Ernesto Nazareth)(1999)
Every song on this CD is over 80 years old. Mark Kent is an old soul who has taken the tangos of Brazilian composer Ernesto Nazareth to a new and more modern level of salutation.

Bar Mitzvah by Bobbo Staron (2000)

You will hear a matured artist laying lyrics to his unique song treatments with an all-acoustic band so vibrantly inspired that they sound plugged in! Denny Croy's string bass playing anchors the intermingling blusey riffs of Paul Warren's (Rod Stewart) lead guitar and the swampy dobro slides of Fred Sokolo with occasional banjo thrown knee deep in between Jimmy Hunter's big beats. Bobbo's fresh batch of tunes was showcased around the L.A. live venues to happy listeners with this crew.

Bobbo Staron /My Name is Robert (1999)
In his second CD, Bobbo Staron reveals himself with his well suited collection of fresh original material. A bit tougher than "Mary Sightings", his first solo studio effort, a confidently postured Staron sings his views of the world through the many textured feels of his acoustic music arena. Enhanced with Lance Morrison's (Alanis Morrisette) bass sensibilities, Paul Warren and Jimmy Hunter provide and bring an almost Kinks-like vibe to this un-plugged meeting of souls as Bobbo's vocals and strums share his experience, strength, and hope with the world.

Mary Sightings by Bobbo Staron (1998)
Robert "Bobbo" Staron makes a dramatic solo debut utilizing the alliance and fellowship of his drummer friend and producer, Jimmy Hunter. The CD's cover is a freak shot of Staron's guitar cables, floor rug and speaker which reveal a momentary out of the shutter glimpse experience of Mother Mary--the Madonna herself--captured on photo film!



Bobbo and Jimmy in the studio.

This inspired collection of tunes, carefully recorded in a sequencial divine order, shows Bobbo Staron as a gifted Dylan-like talent who is ready to break right on through to the other side. All acoustic-except for Lance Morrison's (Alanis Morrisette) bass-the band converses through Staron's renderings with a dedicated reverence as painful bends of bluesman Paul Warren's (Rod Stewart) lead guitar tastefully highlight Bobbo's original style of singing. Indeed, a man with plenty to say, Bobbo Staron sings straight from the heart from the CDs desolate opening to its closing spiritual message taking his listeners through a wide range of emotional possiblities.

Sleeping With Dr. Alias / Dr. Gary Alias (1997-98)
This prolific songwriter is the most unpredictable of all of the talented clients Jimmy Hunter has produced. Gary "Alias" Abrams is a real doctor--a psychologist and a rather maverick one at that. You will hear it in his music.

This multi song project is a combination music CD and psychological intsructional learning tool. Aided by years of the best guitarists in the Cazador stable, Dr. Alias and Hunter have done over 40 songs over the years and like the Ever-Ready bunny--still going . . .

Most of Alias'songs start with humorous vignette-type skits which rope the listener into the topic of the moment, then Alias hits them where it counts--their subconscious! His product has multiple marketing strategies and make for very good listening to a wide range of fans.

The Mommies -- Caryl & Marilyn (1998)
The Mommies aka Caryl Kristensen and Marilyn Kentz are known for their ABC talk show and Palmolive Commercial and weight loss infomercials on TV. They also do stand up comedy and came to Jimmy in 1998 to record several parady type song arrangements under his production including their single release "Livin' On A Culdesac". During that time Hunter also mastered their "Mommies LIVE!" CD from ADAT pre-recorded tapes.

Mystic Dancer / Ruby Cassidy (1998)
Exotic rock diva Ruby Cassidy lives up to here CD title "The Mystic Dancer" with songs co-written with Dan Snellenbarger and a little help from Jimmy on lyrics and melod. Cassidy made her first effort a good one under the umbrella of Jimmy's production. The CD features the guitar artistry of Steve Caton from the Tori Amos camp and Bob Birch from the Elton John band on bass. Somehow, due to contractual disagreements, Jimmy's name was omitted from the recording. The name "Mystic Renegade" seems to be there instead. The production style clearly is Cazadorian. As Jimmy confesses, "ya can't win 'em all!"

Ghosts Of the Open Road (1997)
Architect by day--bluesman by night, Craig Jamison built this CD on raw Route 66 bluespower. Teamed with a most able drummer, Bill Lawrence, the two long-time bandmates put together a fine CD of smokin' jams that feature Jamison's vintage guitar tones and his desert lonely road lyrics. Bob Birch (Elton John) delivered his classic bass feel with producer Jimmy Hunter and Penny Wanzo adding their Cazador male/female stacked background vocals.

In Chantment / Wayne Perry (1996)
Wayne is one of the most unique of all recording artists to grace the iron doors of Cazador. He is a spiritual tone healer-that is-he uses his voices as a healing tool and instructs others how they can do the same. His CD is full of concepts and compositions he does with his voice and by multi-track overdubbing he creates a virtual symphony of sound both soley and soulfully with his voice. He gets an incredible tone and it is unbelievable that only human voice sound was used, but it is true. In a few instances, Jimmy sampled various tones of Perry's voice and composed a few of the outside jazzy cuts as sort of a "writer for hire." Wayne Perry tours the country as a lecturer on spiritual tone healing and holds classes in Los Angeles on the subject when he is in town.

Greg Ginn - Let It Burn Because I Don't Live There Anymore(1994)
Hunter did drum programming for this CD with assistance from punk rocker Eric Blitz. This was the first CD that Ginn came to Hunter for various drumming chores over the course of his solo career after leaving the famed Black Flag punk rock group.
