“Stars and Garters” is German-born jazz drummer Jochen Rueckert’s 5th and likely most “fun” release as a band leader.
Breaking from the guitar/tenor/bass/drums format of his last 3 efforts, he leads a groovy organ + tenor trio here, offering his originals and some unexpected covers including a few surprisingly unironic covers. Ostensibly retrograde, the organ’s oldfangled sound lets Rueckert slip an extra dose of his trademark twists and turns into the repertoire.
Veterans Troy Roberts on tenor saxophone and Brian Charette on organ, each having earned their Stars and Garters on the bloody battlefields of the New York jazz scene, complete this extraordinary trio.
