Trumpet player Etienne Charles is a child of the world: a perfect blend of French, Spanish, English, and Dutch speaking Caribbean. He carries his bountiful influences from European classical music and Afro-Caribbean culture into his music, reflecting this mixture on his music with rhythms from jazz, reggae, Congo, and rock as well as Motown and R&B music. Born in Trinidad, he eventually made his way to NYC and graduated from the prestigious Julliard School. His new album Creole Soul has already received critical acclaim by the New York Times, JazzTimes, and Downbeat, and has hit #1 on the JazzWeek Radio Chart. Currently a professor at the Michigan State University, Etienne is definitely one of the most promising talents of his generation and won’t want to be missed in SubCulture’s intimate setting.
