Some of you may know that the goodfoot houses a Hammond organ and is the touring home of some of the finest B-3 burners on West Coast. If that’s your thing then you DO NOT want to miss this show, as some serious East Coast hammond playing is about to ensue. New York City organist/pianist, Brian Charette, has established himself as a leading voice in modern Jazz. He’s 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.
Charette was born in Meriden, Connecticut in 1972, and was introduced to music by his mother, Catherine. By the age of 17, he was playing with jazz luminaries Lou Donaldson and Houston Person. Since graduating on the Dean’s List from UConn in 1994 with a BA in Music, Charette has been performing extensively in Europe and the USA with his home base being the East Village, NYC. Brian is a staple of the downtown NYC scene working with virtually everyone who plays with an organist.
