Hailed by the New York Times as "an auteur" and by JazzTimes as a "daring improviser who delivers with heart wrenching lyricism,” Trinidad-born trumpet player, percussionist, and composer Etienne Charles has earned a reputation for blending the myriad rhythms and sounds of the Caribbean and American South (especially New Orleans jazz) into his signature style of Creole soul. A Juilliard grad and a 2015 Guggenheim Fellow, Charles is a member of Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Swing Collective. His forthcoming album, Carnival: The Sound of a People Vol. 1, is an excursion into the varied acoustic sounds, grooves, chants, and rituals of Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago. For this special evening, Charles will premiere a work commissioned by Lincoln Center and inspired by the diverse immigrant experiences of the Americas.
