July 6. On Creole Soul, his fourth and newest album, Trinidadian trumpeter Etienne Charles explores styles stretching from Haitian Creole chants, voudou music, and Belair folk to blues, bebop, R&B, reggae and rocksteady, and calypso. A professor at Michigan State University, Charles, who this month plays the Orpheum Performing Arts Center, was mentored by the great Jamaican reggae and jazz pianist Monty Alexander. "Mr. Charles knows how to make an album more than just a calling card for a small band, and how to sequence it too," says the New York Times. "He's an auteur." (The Orpheum Academy of Dance performs the ballet "Les Oeufs des Faberge" July 13.) 4pm. $5. ">Tannersville.
