Internationally acclaimed and Grammy Award-winning trumpeter and composer Charlie Porter first cut his
teeth on the New York jazz scene in the late ’90s, while simultaneously studying classical trumpet performance
at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of famed trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis. Though he has a
strong penchant for improvised music, Charlie has since delved into many projects from jazz and classical to
Arabic, Indian, African, Australian Aboriginal and Korean music, seeking to find common ground among all "good
music" and avoiding the pigeonholing of genre labels.
Though he has recorded many albums as a side musician, Porter has two recent albums as a leader that have
been garnering high praise
