By: Jay Edwards

Join me Sunday on WCLK’s Jazz Tones from 3pm-7pm. My special guest will be Etienne Charles—Assistant Professor of Jazz Studies at Michigan State University, recording artist, and arranger. Etienne is a young Trinidadian who is an amazing trumpet, steel drum, and cuatro player. He graduated from Jazz programs at Florida State University and Juillard. Carnival The Sound of A People Vol 1 is his new release on Culture Shock Music.

It explores the past and present of Carnival on his island homeland Trinidad.
