We thought that our devoted readers would like to know that Brian Charette, jazz organ player extraordinaire, will be touring the Midwest, with stops at Blu Jazz in Akron on Wednesday, October 21st, and Nighttown on Thursday, October 22nd. We've heard him play before, and he's definitely worth hearing. With him will be Bobby Ferrazza on guitar. For more information, check out his website: http://www.briancharette.com
From Brian's bio: I'm
a Grammy Nominated, Hammond endorsed, Posi-Tone recording artist. I won the
"Rising Star" award in Downbeat Magazine last year and have climbed
up to #4 in the Downbeat Critic's Poll in the Organ category this year. I just
won "Best Organist" in NYC by one of our magazines, Hot House. I also
write regularly for Keyboard Magazine, Downbeat, NYC Jazz Record, and a Czech
Magazine called Muzikus.
