Grammy nominated, Hammond organist, Brian Charette has established himself as a leading voice in modern jazz. He has worked with many notable artists such as Joni Mitchell, Chaka Khan, Lou Donaldson, and countless others. Since moving to New York in 1995 from his native Meriden, Connecticut, Charette has become an integral part of the New York City jazz scene.

Brian is a SteepleChase recording artist, and has just released his third recording for them, "Music for Organ Sextette". He also just finished a solo organ recording that will be out in January 2013. Brian performs regularly all over the world. This year, Brian has been playing very successful engagements in NYC, LA, Spain, Indonesia, Czech Republic, and Germany.

Brian writes master classes regularly for Keyboard Magazine, and has recently become a Nord endorsed artist. In June, Downbeat Magazine gave "Music for Organ Sextette" 3 1/2 stars and listed Brian as a "Rising Star" in the 2012 Critics Poll.

As a sideman, Brian records with many popular jazz artists; most recently with Tony Desare, Bucky Pizzarelli, Mike DiRubbo and Vic Juris. Mr. Charette is also featured prominently on two new Mel Bay instructional DVDs by Rodney Jones and Sheryl Bailey.

Bill Milkowski of Jazz Times has called Brian "one of the best of the new breed of B3 Players". Keyboard Magazine's Carl Lumma said "if you care a whit about the future of music you owe this album a listen". Edward Blanco of Ejazzreview calls Charette's playing "Dazzling" and "Virtuosic"
