@ Smalls NYC with Henry Hey and Jochen Rueckert

  • Smalls

Brian, Henry and Jochen have been friends and East Village neighbors for many years. This new group shakes up the traditional organ trio format with the substitution of Henry's virtuosic sonic palate for the guitar chair. Jochen, besides being an incredible jazz drummer, is a programing wiz. Check out his group, WPW. The combination of these elements, with the addition of Brian's quirky and beautiful compositions create a synergy that's not to be missed.

Hammond Organ USA presents a night of music from some of it’s most prolific artists; Scott May, Jim Alfredson, Brian Charette and Jordan Young. The group will play all kinds of music celebrating the glorious Hammond B3, invented in Chicago in 1935 by Laurens Hammond. Brian is a Grammy Nominated Downbeat Critic's Poll Winner, Jim has trio, Organissimo, that made it to #5 in the Jazzweek Charts last year and Scott is the keyboardist for Ides of March. We will use the evening to pay special tribute to one of our leading brothers who was supposed to play with us that night, Gregg Gronnowski.
