SCCD 31756 Brian Charette Solo B-3 “Borderline”

While his previous release “ Music For Organ Sextette ” (SCCD 31731) is still

enjoying superlative receptions by the critics and public alike for its most personal and innovative approach to Hammond B3 organ in a relatively large ensemble, Brian Charette emerges here with an intriguing collection of solo B3 performances filled with compeling and creative surprises to push the boundary of the instrument even further.

Brian Charette is out to prove that the Hammond B3 ain’t just for flexing your funk chops ….(Shaun Brady – DownBeat on Music For Organ Sextette )

“… Charette weaves a unique and gripping aural tapestry together with a mélange of woodwinds serving as the thread. He channels his energy into creating constructs that benefit from the blending of multiple voices, yet remain flexible enough to allow for outspoken soloists to have their say. ..” Dan Bilawsky – AllAboutJazz on Music For Organ Sextette )
