ETIENNE CHARLES & CREOLE SOUL - LITCHFIELD, CT

The Sound: bright trumpet work blends with captivating Afro-Carribbean rhythms in Etienne Charles’ exotic Creole Soul sextet (pianist Sullivan Fortner, saxophonist Brian Hogans, guitarist Alex Wintz, bassist Ben Williams, drummer John Davis). Hailed by The New York Times as “an auteur” and by JazzTimes as “A daring improviser who delivers with heart wrenching lyricism,” NPR’s All Things Considered calls Etienne, “a great young trumpeter…“, his records filter calypso, reggae and other Afro-Caribbean musics into a modern jazz conception.” Critics and audiences alike continue to praise the Trinidadian’s exciting performances, thrilling compositions, and his charismatic onstage presence. Etienne is a Guggenheim Fellow in the Creative Arts, Associate Professor of Jazz Trumpet and Teacher Scholar at Michigan State University, and has been written in to US Congressional Record for his musical contributions to Trinidad & Tobago and the World.

Rich Brown - bass

Luis Deniz - sax

Robi Botos - keyboard/piano 

Larnell Lewis - drums

--- 

Toronto electric bassist rich brown formed rinsethealgorithm in 2004 with the purpose of taking a modern approach to the idea that Jazz was the original dance music. The music, while rooted in the Jazz tradition, is also heavily influenced by the Jazz-Rock and Jazz-Funk groups of the 70s, 80s, and 90s (i.e. Weather Report, Miles Davis, Steve Coleman) but the main objective of rinsethealgorithm is to combine these older and newer traditions with elements of modern forms of dance music. The result of this amalgamation of musical ideas is a fresh new sound that combines sophisticated harmonic and melodic concepts with a heavily groove oriented rhythmic base.
