Charlie Hunter: Solo Inventions is a 2005 American concert documentary featuring the musical stylings of Jazz musician Charlie Hunter. This 50-minute special highlights Charlie's technical abilities on his unique 8 stringed instrument. While the production value is obviously very low, Charlie makes up for whatever is lacking in production with his exceedingly mesmerizing talent. Produced and directed by Daniel Berman, the production has a casual feel, as though the camera just happened to be set-up during a practice session. His instrument, which is something between a guitar and a bass, has allowed him to form to build a niche audience, and in the short interviews spliced between his performances, Charlie discusses the creation of the instrument to his mastery of it. Featured songs include "11 Bars for Ghandi," "8 String Guitar Jam," "My Heart Belongs to Daddy," "Stars Fell on Alabama, " "Oakland, " "Quality of Life Jam," "Untitled Ballad," and "Lulu's Crawl."
