A native of Trinidad, trumpeter Etienne Charles is a musician who
defies limitations and seeks out ethnic connections in his music.
His Creole Soul project, which received international claim on the
iTunes, Jazzweek and Billboard Jazz charts, explores the musical
connections between Afro-Caribbean, Creole, New Orleans and
American traditions. Charles studied with the great Marcus Roberts,
and has performed or recorded as a sideman with legends like Monty
Alexander, Roberta Flack, Wynton Marsalis, Maria Schneider, and the
Count Basie Orchestra.
