Charlie Porter Quartet: Offering a fiery and intelligent approach to jazz that is both forward-thinking and steeped in tradition, the Charlie Porter Quartet interprets standards and original music with boundless creativity and imagination. Formed in 2005, the group’s governing elements and influences include expressive music that communicates with audiences, while honoring the legacy of such original jazz ambassadors as Louis Armstrong and Dizzy Gillespie.
The Charlie Porter Quartet will perform as part of the Rhythm Road: American Music Abroad concert series presented by National Geographic Live! This prestigious series, a collaboration between Jazz at Lincoln Center and the U. S. State Department, features top performers of jazz, urban, and roots music, selected from applicants from around the country to represent American music and culture at venues overseas.
