Dizzy's Club

Etienne Charles: Creole Christmas

With trumpeter Etienne Charles, pianist Christian Sands, cuatroist Jorge Glem, bassist Or Bareket, and drummer Savannah Harris.

Trumpeter, percussionist, composer, and recent Guggenheim Fellow Etienne Charles returns to celebrate another holiday at Dizzy’s Club. Using jazz as a foundation to engage 20th century Caribbean folk and pop traditions, his powerful band incorporates musical elements from Trinidad, Jamaica, Haiti, and Martinique in a fluid blend of jazz tradition, rhythms of the Caribbean, and an emphasis on the Afro-Caribbean history of calypso music. Across original compositions and new arrangements of classics, Charles’ repertoire is always diverse, carefully selected, and handled with care and originality. Shake off the winter blues with us and warm up with the sounds of a Creole Christmas. For more Etienne Charles, don’t miss his headlining performance in our final Appel Room concert of the season—Etienne Charles’ Carnival: The Sound of a People.
