“Charles McPherson is the very definition of excellence in our music,” says Wynton Marsalis. “He’s the definitive master on his instrument. He plays with exceptional harmonic accuracy and sophistication. He performs free-flowing, melodic and thematically developed solos with unbelievable fire and an unparalleled depth of soul.” All of us at Jazz Standard is delighted to be hosting this 80th birthday celebration for this twelve-year veteran of the Charles Mingus bands who made his recording debut as a leader in 1964 with his classic Prestige album Bebop Revisited! “Finding a saxophonist versed in the language of bebop may not provide much in the way of revelatory thrills, but witnessing an authentic master of the art, like the altoist Charles McPherson, can still elicit a genuine spinal chill.” (The New Yorker)
