New York City organist/pianist, Brian Charette, debuts at the Blue Note on Monday, May 21 to celebrate the release of his latest CD featuring tenor titan George Coleman. The CD titled Groovin’ with Big G will be released later this month on Steeplechase and features guitarist Vic Juris and drummer George Coleman Jr.
Charette has established himself as a leading voice in modern Jazz. He is a Grammy-nominated, Hammond-endorsed artist who was the winner of the 2014 Downbeat Critics’ Poll Rising Star. In 2015 Brian also won The Hot House Magazine’s Fan’s Decision Jazz Award for Best Organist in New York. His last Positone Records recording, Once and Future, reached #17 on the Jazz Week chart and was also on the Itunes new music Top 20. This Summer, Brian just released his new Circuit Bent Organ trio recording, Kürrent, featuring Ben Monder and will have a traditional Jazz organ trio release coming out on Steeplechase Records in Fall 2017.
