“He plays almost everything big, bold and bluesy, his gleaming sound appealing in all musical contexts” — Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Charles McPherson is one of jazz’s most journeyed alto saxophonists. A product of Detroit’s ’50s jazz heritage, he studied with the renowned pianist Barry Harris and started playing jazz professionally at age 19. He moved from Detroit to New York in 1959 and performed with Charles Mingus from 1960 to 1974. While performing with Mingus, he collaborated with Harris, Art Farmer, Kenny Drew, Pepper Adams, Charles Tolliver, Toshiko Akiyoshi, and the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra.
