Jazz with Jeff Duperon

Friday, 6 to 10 pm

Kick off your weekend with Jeff Duperon as he takes a cruise through the current. Jeff brings you the best of the new releases, and acts as a weekend planner. If there's music going on in the area, he'll tell you where to find it. And he always gets a visit from a visiting performer to talk about their music. Spend your Friday nights with Jeff…he'll help you find a new favorite artist, album, or piece of music.

Maureen Malloy Suggests: Etienne Charles, CREOLE SOUL

Many people hear the word "Creole" and immediately think of New Orleans. So it's easy to look at bandleader/trumpeter Etienne Charles’ new album, Creole Soul, and assume it's full of traditional jazz or New Orleans-style trumpet.  This is not the case, as Charles’ background (and playing) is actually the true epitome of Creole.

Piano Mastery, Trinidadian Trumpet, Singing Apes: New Jazz

Trumpeter Etienne Charles' new album is called Creole Soul.
Laura Ferreira Courtesy of the artist

Originally published on Mon July 29, 2013 10:26 am

It's been too long since we simply sat up and pointed out a few of the many new releases worth a set of ears. Luckily, the staff on weekends at All Things Considered thought the same. They invited me to sit down with host Jacki Lyden and play a few cuts for them.

Here's music from an elder statesman of piano, a trumpeter who understands creole music personally, a drummer who writes tunes with a payoff, and a singer in her early 20s with maturity and kick.
