New York City organist/pianist, Brian Charette, has established himself as a leading voice in modern Jazz.
Charette is a Grammy-nominated, Hammond-endorsed artist who was the winner of the 2014 Downbeat Critics’ Poll Rising Star: Organ award and has climbed to 4th place in The Critic's Poll main organ category. In 2015 Brian also won The Hot House Magazine's Fan's Decision Jazz Award for Best Organist in New York. His last Positone recording, Once and Future, reached #17 on the Jazz Week chart and was also on the Itunes new music Top 20. This Fall, Brian released his new Circuit Bent Organ trio recording, Kürrent, featuring Ben Monder and has a brand new traditional Jazz organ trio release on Steeplechase Records featuring NEA Master, George Coleman called Groovin with Big G. On Dec, 1, 2020, Brian will release "Like the Sun", an album recorded in the first months of lock down. Because there was no ability to record with his band, Charette programmed sequencers and drum machines to accompany him; a robot band if you will. The tunes are tracked live with just 2 overdubs of guitar and meant to inspire the listener with optimistic, memorable melodies, slick grooves, and a swirling electronic loveliness.
