More Coverage for Brian Charette “Square One”…

leave a comment



Damn tight Hammond work from Brian Charette – a player with a really deft touch on the keys, and able to really showcase his own voice on the instrument, but also dip back into some older soulful modes as well! Most of the tracks here are originals by Charette – although there’s also a great Meters cover too – and his trio has all the right inflections to keep up with his soaring sense of energy – making for a mix of guitar and organ that’s maybe even more balanced than most other organ combos. Charette’s got a clean tone on most numbers – ala Jack McDuff at his mid 60s best – but also can open up with more flourish when needed, depending on the track. Titles include “Ease Back”, “Time Changes”, “Aaaight”, “If”, “Three For Martina”, “People On Trains”, and “Things You Don’t Mean”.
