As part of his 2013 World Tour Trinidad-born trumpeter Etienne Charles headlines the evening, performing tracks from his new album, Creole Soul being released through Red Distribution/Sony Music Canada on July 23. Creole Soul highlights a myriad of inspirations from Haitian creole chants and blues to bebop and R&B while drawing on an array of rhythms including Rocksteady, Reggae, Belle Air, Kongo and Calypso. To preview Etienne’s 3rd album Creole Soul please go to the link on Soundcloud. An alumnus of the prestigious Juilliard School and Florida State University, Etienne has received critical acclaim for his exciting performances, thrilling compositions and knack for connecting with audiences worldwide. Etienne has been hailed by The New York Times as “an auteur” (Ben Ratliff), by Jazz Times as “A daring improviser who delivers with heart wrenching lyricism” (Bill Milkowski) and according to Downbeat Magazine “Charles delivers his ebullient improvisations with the elegance of a world-class ballet dancer.” (Iohn Murph). In June 2012, Etienne was awarded with a US Congressional Record for his musical contributions to the citizens of Trinidad & Tobago and the World. Etienne cooks up an ambrosial bouillabaisse of New World music genres, with Jazz and Calypso standing out as piquant flavours.
