Beginning his career as a jazz organist/keyboard player at the young age of 17, Brian Charette has had the opportunity to work with many well-known artists such as Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, and Michael McDonald. He will also be playing with Danny Carrey, Tool’s drummer, at an upcoming show at the Baked Potato jazz venue. Brian is a grammy-nominated musician and recently received the 2014 Downbeat Critic’s Poll for Rising Star: Organ. When he’s not recording and performing, Brian teaches master classes all over the world and is on the faculty of the Czech Summer Jazz Workshop at Jesek Conservatory in Prague.
In addition to his Grammy nomination and Hammond Organ Company endorsement, Brian Charette has received reviews from All About Jazz, Jazz Times, and Jazz Inside Magazine. LA Times describes his music as “Just the right proportions of refinement and rambunctiousness” and The New York Times raves that “The Hammond B-3 organist Brian Charette weighs the ageless objective of soul-jazz with a trace of restless modernity.”
