About Charlie Porter

Internationally acclaimed trumpeter and composer Charlie Porter first cut his teeth on the New York jazz scene in the late 90’s, while simultaneously studying classical trumpet performance at The Juilliard School under the tutelage of famed trumpeter and composer Wynton Marsalis. 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 two recent albums as a leader that have been garnering high praise. He recently released his second album as a leader “Immigration Nation,” recorded in New York City, on the Origin Arts label in late November, 2019. It has been hailed by Jazziz Magazine as “a joyful but tempered expression of optimism...poignantly voiced...nuanced performance,” “Sublime…Joyous…Fascinating" by Jeff Krow of Audiophile Audition, and as “A sterling merger of politics and music” by Chris Spector of Midwest Record.

Previously, he released the debut epinonimous album, “Charlie Porter,” in 2018, which 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 patiently unfolding” by DownBeat Magazine.

Charlie has toured the world as a side-man and band-leader in jazz and also as a classical soloist and chamber musician, performing and recording with many notable musicians and groups over the last twenty years ranging from jazz greats like Joe Zawinul, Mike Longo, Paquito D’Rivera, Charli Persip and Chuck Israels to classical artists such as Simone Dinnerstein, Sarah Chang, and Joyce DiDonato as well as world-music greats Goran Bregovic, Marcel Khalife and Kim Duksoo, among many others. He is also a founding member of the grammy-nominated electro-acoustic Absolute Ensemble, directed by Kristjan Jarvi. Charlie’s recent collaboration on opera star Joyce DoDonato’s crossover album “Songplay” earned him a Grammy Nomination for 2019.

Porter holds degrees from The Juilliard School and Manhattan School of music in jazz and classical performance. He was also a Fulbright Scholar at the Paris Conservatory. Among many awards to his credit, Charlie was the first trumpeter to win 1st place in both the classical and jazz divisions of the National Trumpet Competition. As a composer, he has been commissioned by Chamber Music America and the Doris Duke Foundation.

Some of Charlie’s most influential music mentors have included George Davis, Tony York, Sy Pryweller, Raymond Mase, Mark Gould, Guy Touvron, Laurie Frink and Cecil Bridgewater.
