Etienne Charles is a world-renowned trumpeter, percussionist, composer, bandleader, member of the SFJAZZ Collective, and a recent Guggenheim Fellow. Tonight marks his long-awaited return to Dizzy’s Club and his first appearance with his own big band. Charles’ music incorporates international musical influences in a fluid blend of American jazz, rhythms and traditions from the Caribbean, and inspired sonic discoveries from his exploration of their relationships. Across original compositions and new arrangements of classics, Charles’ repertoire is always diverse, carefully selected, and handled with care and originality. Make sure to experience Etienne Charles in our smallest venue before he returns in June 2020 to headline our 2019–20 season-closing concerts in The Appel Room.
