He is a Grammy nominee and recipient of a US Congressional Certificate of Special Recognition for his ‘contribution to the American art form of Jazz’.

Auger Incorporated includes classic album tracks, rarities and live concerts performances, some of which have never released before from Brian’s ground-breaking, genre busting catalogue, and reaches back to his early 60’s debut as an poll-winning jazz piano prodigy, his transformation into swinging London’s premier Hammond Organ player via his groups’ The Steam Packet and Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & The Trinity, and his flagship 70’s band – The Oblivion Express - Auger's blend of jazz, R&B and pop idioms saw him credited as one of the earliest protagonists of jazz fusion.

Particularly rare highlights include The Steam Packet’s blistering instrumental version of Robert Parkers’s R&B smash Watch Your Step, the 2 tracks by Sonny Boy Williamson backed by Brian The Trinity with a young Jimmy Page as guest, the live 1960’s versions of Save Me and Red Beans & Rice and the recently unearthed version of the jazz dance classic Jeannine featuring the unmistakable voice of Julie Driscoll.

From The Oblivion Express era, there’s an intense and driving live version of Freedom Jazz Dance, and the alternative mix/radio edit of Marvin Gaye’s Inner City Blues, Brian’s mid 80’s Italo-disco hit ‘Night Train To Nowhere’ – Auger Incorporated has something for the die hard fan and all those new to this extraordinary musicians unmatchable 60 year career.
