Brian Charette Circuit Bent Organ Trio: Kurrent

Read "Kurrent" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

A mainstay of the New York scene since the '90s, organist Brian Charette has a worldly view on music that makes it hard to contain all his pent up musical energies in a conventional way. This partly explains why his recent spate of records for the Posi-Tone label seemed to satisfy while still leaving one with ...

Jordan Young: Jazz Jukebox

Read "Jazz Jukebox" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan

One of the strengths of Marc Free's Posi-Tone imprimatur is that it is responsible for introducing us to many great and upcoming jazz artists. Drummer Jordan Young is a Detroit native who has studied with some of the best of the modern-day masters and is making a name for himself in New York. His sophomore release ...

Jordan Young: Jazz Jukebox

Read "Jazz Jukebox" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The predominance of the jukebox in social situations is essentially a thing of the past. But how much has really changed? Those once-ubiquitous machines that brought musical happiness to the good people in corner bars and diners throughout the land may have vanished, but the concept they put forward has not. It's simply been modernized, with ...

Nighttown
Cleveland, Ohio

It's not often that you get the chance to hear two organists going head to head in a live setting. Jimmy Mc Griff and Groove Holmes did it, but few others have dared to tread in such territory. Nonetheless, if ...

Brian Charette: Good Tipper

Read "Good Tipper" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Nine of the eleven tracks on organist Brian Charette's Square One (Posi-Tone, 2014) were originals, but that doesn't mean he's uninterested in tackling the music of others. In fact, judging by this album, it would seem that he really digs digging into covers. Everybody from film score icon John Barry to tunesmith Jimmy Webb to saxophonist ...

Jordan Young: Cymbal Melodies

Read "Cymbal Melodies" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Drummer Jordan Young took the organ quartet outside of its stylistic comfort zone on his debut, Jordan Young Group (Self Produced, 2010), and continues to carve his own path within this format on this enjoyable follow-up. Young reconvenes the quartet from his first leader date, with Avi Rothbard taking the place of guitarist Yotam Silberstein, and ...

Jordan Young Group: The Jordan Young Group

Read "The Jordan Young Group" reviewed by Florence Wetzel

The Jordan Young Group is a terrific CD full of swing, spot-on timing, and beautiful melodies. The substitution of organist Brian Charette and guitarist Yotam Silberstein for the usual quartet line-up of bass and piano gives drummer Young's group a sonorous, spacious sound, and the disc's tasteful song selection nicely displays the musicians' considerable gifts.

Jordan Young: Jordan Young Group

Read "Jordan Young Group" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

It's too early to tell if drummer Jordan Young's music will stand the test of time, but it's already evident that this isn't just a run-of-the-mill organ-based album. Rather than an all-too common blues-saturated affair, Young has made some wise choices, with repertoire selection topping the list. In fact, tenor saxophonist Joe Sucato's lone contribution, “JF ...
