Brian Charette: Music for Organ Sextette

With organist Brian Charette, drummer Jochen Rueckert, flutist Itai Kriss, alto saxophonist Mike DiRubbo, tenor saxophonist Kenny Brooks, and bass clarinetist Karel Ruzicka.

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.
