Irrepressible trumpeter Etienne Charles has been hailed by The New York Times as “an auteur” and by Jazz Times as “a daring improviser who delivers with heart-wrenching lyricism.” He is one of today’s most exciting jazz artists, a trailblazer leading the genre into new territory. Etienne and his band Creole Soul make their first Houston appearance before a live audience, infusing reggae, Calypso, and Afro-Caribbean music into their distinctive version of modern jazz.

“Charles delivers his ebullient improvisations with the elegance of a world-class ballet dancer.” — Downbeat
