SoulMates (2013)

SoulMates (2013)


After NYC Organ Ace Brian Charette jammed with Czech Jazz Luminaries, Libor Smoldas and Tomas Hobzek, it was obvious the 3 were Soulmates. Their self- titiled debut on the New Port Line label has already been making big waves on the Prague Jazz scene. Nothing is off limits for this dynamic group. At their live performances, the gentleman flow effortlessly from Reggae grooves to hard swinging straight ahead and even give a nod to distorted hard rock anthems. The group is on fire and everyone is talking about their innovative approach to the classic organ trio format. Catch them this Spring as they tour throughout the Czech Republic in support of this amazing release!
