Brand New CD out June 3, 2016 ! Once and Future
Organist Brian Charette takes us on a tour-de-force of the "Once & Future" history of the Hammond B-3 with his fourth album for Posi-Tone! Organ buffs and casual listeners will be delighted to tune in and turn on this groovy and hard-hitting date. The record features an exciting program of musical selections from a wide range of styles, from the funky and familiar to the soulful and original. While the focus and crux of the session rests squarely upon the shoulders of Mr. Charette and his B-3 organ, the strong showings of guitarist Will Bernard and drummer Steve Fidyk also provide melodic highlights and consistently exhibit the kind of strong rhythmic support that always keeps the session in the pocket. Charette literally wrote the book on the B-3, and his new album "Once & Future" certainly succeeds again and again as a straight forward collection of performances that jazz enthusiasts will enjoy time after time after time.
Brand New Album, Alphabet City. Out June 9
2014's Good Tipper 40 weeks in the Jazz Week top 50!!
Featuring two great trios ,Yotam Silberstein (g) and Mark Ferber (d) in one section, Avi Rothbard (g) and Jordan Young (d) in the other. Saxophonist, Joe Sucato, makes a special appearance on one cut too. Funky and Kitchy covers on this one like Time of The Season by the Zombies and a few nice originals. This is my most "inside" album I would say.
