Creole Roots Plus

The many wonders of the Savory Collection received thrillingly new and varied interpretations in this imaginative evening of music. Two giants - violinist Matt Glaser, Artistic Director of Berklee College of Music's American Roots Project and Trinidad-born trumpeter Etienne Charles, award-winning recording artist/assistant professor of jazz trumpet at the Michigan State University College of Music, agreed to take the classic sounds of Ellington, Basie, Waller, Goodman, Reinhardt and others and refract them through their own individual perspectives. Students from the American Roots Program joined some of Boston's best players and the NJMH's Artistic Director Loren Schoenberg.
