‘The craft and sincerity, the discipline and passion that Charles McPherson brings to the alto saxophone is a tribute to the beauty of jazz’ (Village Voice). According to authoritative jazz magazine Downbeat no one else alive today has mastered the musical language of Charlie Parker like Charles McPherson.
The alto saxophonist played with Charles Mingus from 1960 to 1972. McPherson keeps bebop alive with his own music. Critics praise his powerful, confident playing on his most recent album The Journey.
