  • This event has passed.

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 recorded three albums to date, as a leader, that have been garnering high praise. He recently released his third album “Hindsight” on the Origin label. Before that, his 2019 release “Immigration Nation” was voted one of the best albums of the year by DownBeat. His debut album “Charlie Porter,” released in 2018, featured a who’s who of Portland jazz musicians, including the legendary Mel Brown and Chuck Israels. It was hailed as “A testament to Porter’s prodigious talent and imaginative creativity” by All About Jazz and as “Technical wizardry” by DownBeat Magazine.
