Etienne Charles Presents: Creole Christmas

With trumpeter and conga player Etienne Charles, alto saxophonist Godwin Louis, trombonist Corey Wilcox, pianist Sullivan Fortner, guitarist Alex Wintz, bassist David “Happy” Williams, drummer McClenty Hunter, percussionist D’Achee, vocalist Keith “Keet Styla” Prescott, tenor saxophonist Jacques Schwarz-Bart, and steel panist Kareem Thompson

 

2015 Guggenheim Fellow Etienne Charles returns to celebrate another holiday at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola. Charles has recently led an exciting series of Creole music-themed projects, including his #1 chart-topping 2013 album, Creole Soul. 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 a Creole Christmas.
