Welcome to the island of Trinidad. Today we’ll be checking in with trumpeter Etienne Charles. The resumé of the multi-talented Charles also includes the titles of composer and arranger. When he is not out performing, he is an Assistant Professor of Jazz Studies at Michigan State University. In the words of Jamaican keyboardist Monty Alexander, Charles is “[a]n amazing trumpet player, and steel drum player, and cuatro player…a young Trinidadian who has held on to his heritage.”


Let’s enjoy the music of Etienne Charles:








Kitch’s Bebop of Calypso




Embraceable You









Live at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola – “Santimanite”




Live at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola – Bob Marley’s “Turn Your Lights Down Low”
