The Jazz Session #505: Brian Charette

Brian Charette‘s new solo organ album is called Beyond Borderline (SteepleChase, 2019). In this interview we talk about the interesting circumstances behind the recording; Brian’s work with George Coleman, Henry Hey, Anton Fig and others; his European travels and how they led to his happy marriage; his many recent albums; and more.
