Karl Charity finds his voice in exciting new jazz act
London-based international jazz musician, Karl Charity, is set to hit the
capital’s vibrant live music circuit after passionate reviews of his vocal talents
persuaded the trumpet player to pick up the microphone.

Tipped by Jazz FM as ‘one of the hottest prospects on the London Jazz scene’, Karl
Charity is an accomplished musician renowned for his slick trumpet style. Blessed
also with a smooth singing voice Charity has announced a series of vocal
performances, accompanied by his band, which features John Bailey (piano), Mark
Allis (drums) and Shura Greenberg (bass).

“I am a trumpet player and I love it, but I am a singer at heart.” says Charity, who has
been expanding his songbook after positive feedback to performances at open mic
nights, leading one critic to describe his voice as ‘seriously mellow’. “The response to
my vocal performances has really inspired me,” he says.

A passionate aficionado of the jazz classics, Charity is becoming a man in demand.
He lists his influences as Jobim, Cole Porter, Andy Williams, Nat King Cole, Diana
Krall and especially Chet Baker. “His singing style has always made a huge
impression on me. The way he combined voice and trumpet was unique,” says
Charity.

Karl Charity is currently performing at the popular Horse Bar on Westminster Bridge
Road, the Tea Box in Richmond, the Colour House Theatre in South London and
Toulouse-Lautrec restaurant in Kennington. For more details, visit Karl Charity’s
