The Sarah Elizabeth Charles Quartet will be performing on the West Coast starting in Seattle, WA on 4/28 at the Triple Door for the Seattle Women In Jazz Festival and then off to California to perform in San Jose and Lodi.
Sarah's music has evolved to become wide ranging, touching on everything from uniquely crafted originals, to contemporary arrangements of jazz standards and re-workings of Haitian folklore music. Her creative energy pours out of each arrangement and original composition with a sense of warmth, passion, honesty, and a unique voice that acts as the tie that binds between each song in her varied repertoire. This energy creates an environment of sound rich with jazz, soul, folklore, drones, modal homes, engaging harmony, and rhythmic variation. The S.E.Charles Quartet, composed of Sarah, Jesse Elder (piano), Burniss Earl Travis (bass), and John Davis (drums), has been together for two years working toward the sound that they have discovered today: one rooted in a musically intuitive nature and strong personal connections.
Sarah Elizabeth Charles has performed at many NYC venues such as The Apollo Theatre with Geri Allen, sold out shows at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, and she's performed with greats such as and George Cables and other influential jazz masters. (http://youtu.be/YTGOFTO_Eos)
