NPR’s All Things Considered says Trinidad-born Etienne Charles is a great young trumpeter that filters “calypso, reggae and other Afro-Caribbean musics into a modern jazz conception.” Performing with his remarkable six-piece band Creole Soul, this concert features his ambitious San Jose Suite, an exploration of the histories and musical traditions of San Jose, Costa Rica; San Jose, California; and St. Joseph, Trinidad, a.k.a. San Jose during the era of Spanish colonization. The suite was commissioned through a Chamber Music America New Jazz Works Grant funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
