News, details, reviews and information about Errol Ince.
The music of Trinidad and Tobago cannot be discussed or archived without the name Errol Ince being close to the top of the list and being repeatedly mentioned as a trumpeter, composer and arranger. Errol is blessed with a long and distinguished musical career, although much of his earlier performances in the late 1950’s are not recorded with orchestras lead by legendary band leaders such as, Fitz Vaughn Bryan, Choy Aming and Johnny Gomez.
However, Errol Ince passion for calypso and his outstanding contribution to the art form remains evident from his recorded collaborations with Black Stalin, Calypso Rose, Melody and Mighty Sparrow. Furthermore, the musical taste of his style of composition in “Sweet TnT” for Natasha Wilson and “Sweet Soca Man” for Barron are both flavored with eternal calypso sweeteners.
The wind took Errol to London in 1961 and between 1968 and 1972 he was voted “Best Trumpet Player in Europe”. Errol’s international achievements were recognized in part from his jazz influences as a side man with some of the best entertainers in the music business including Frank Sinatra, Maynard Ferguson, Sammy Davis Jr. and Shirley Bassey.
Errol’s seasoned jazz influences continued in New York with Tommy Dorsey Orchestra in 1976 and later as the anchor trumpeter with Lionel Hampton Orchestra. Errol has also been a Sun Shine Award nominee in 1990, 1993 and 1999 for songs with Errol Ince and friends and Unite Caribbean People and Willie Dead respectively.
In recent times Barbados Jazz Festival, Jazz on the Greens, Jazzpoint, San Fernando Jazz Festival and Tobago Jazz Festival have all shared the joy of Errol’s return to our shores.
