Brian Charette, (keys, #4 DownBeat Critic's Poll), Henry Hey (keys, David Bowie, Rudder) and Jochen Rueckert (drums) are all very accomplished NYC artists and have been friends and East Village neighbors for many years. This new group shakes up the traditional organ trio format with the substitution of Henry's virtuosic sonic palate for the guitar chair. Jochen, besides being an incredible jazz drummer, is a programing wiz. Check out his group, WPW. The combination of these elements, with the addition of Brian's quirky and beautiful compositions create a synergy that's not to be missed.
