Hear Hammond B-3 Organist Brian Charette Light Up Our Studio, on Mid-Day Jazz


Newark, N.J. — home of WBGO — is also one of the cities in the "Hammond B3 Trinity," with Philadelphia and Atlantic City. So it was a great pleasure to have Brian Charette with drummer Brian Fischler in our studios to play our own B3. 

Enjoy this session, which Charette, in his clever fashion, dubbed the "Bri-Fecta" — we certainly did!

Brian Charette performs the late night set with Oz Noy and Ari Hoenig this Saturday at the Blue Note in New York. His most recent album, Beyond Borderline: Hammond B3 Organ Solos, is out now on SteepleChase. See his website for more information.

Here is his version of "Time Changes," live in our studio.
