Show Full Description
The Brian Charette Organ Sextette is a funky take on the jazz organ band. Charette’s emphasis on creating music “more compositional, less soloistic, even though there are lots of solos” makes for a fast-paced performance, with a healthy balance of compositional intricacies and short, energetic solos. The Grammy Award–nominated Charette has worked with artists from Chaka Khan to Joni Mitchell, and he says this instrumental, woodwind-heavy sextet is “more informed by rock and hip hop than jazz.” Combined with Charette’s distinct and textural use of the organ, the Sextette has a tight, accessible, and highly danceable sound, while maintaining the subtlety and sophistication expected of jazz musicians.
