Brian has been on the scene now for a number of years and it seems that he has truly established himself as one of our top shelf jazz organists. Constantly moving forward and yet keeping a respectful ear on what came before him, Brian thrills audiences on both coasts with his broad perspective of 'organic' sounds. He's an author, educator, composer and one of the best and most modern jazz organists you'll hear. In this episode of my Doodlin' Lounge, we hear several tracks from his newest CD release - one that features the great tenor saxophonist, George Coleman - AND his drummer son, George Coleman, Jr. Brian Charette is a force to be reckoned with, to be sure! Enjoy...

This podcast is from my archives. The Jazz Organ Fellowship had plans to honor Melvin Rhyne in 2012 and I thought it was important to interview him and begin the process of publicizing this. I had spoken to him over the phone several times in the past but this particular recorded conversation was more revealing than others. I felt blessed to have become friends with Mel and was proud to bestow upon him our JOF Award.

Drummer Mike Clark and pianist/organist Delbert Bump have been musical brothers for decades. Their newly released CD called Retro Report - which is long over due - provides evidence of this. It started out as a trial and quickly expanded into a full session of tracks dedicated to their formative years playing organ grooves in and around the Bay Area. With each of them having quite different careers in the music world, this is a welcome return to the common ground they both shared when the organ combo was king. We converse with both and sample their CD in this episode...I hope you enjoy.
