Trinidadian trumpeter Etienne Charles brings the spirit of the islands to an album of holiday songs. With his graceful grasp of multiple styles, Charles blends jazz with calypso on cuts like “Father Christmas” and “Make a Friend for Christmas” (with help from guest vocalist Relator) to joyous, harmonically sophisticated results. Steel drums have never sounded as jazzy as on “Indian Parang Chick.” And Charles shows off his straight-ahead bop chops too, burning his way through a jubilant reinvention of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town.”
