Charles McPherson is simply one of the great alto saxophonists in the history of jazz; in any case, the most fantastic living representative of the bebop, a style that revolutionized jazz in the 1940s, and its lyricism and virtuosity brought to new heights. Born in 1939, raised in Detroit’s jazz nursery, he moved to New York City in 1959 and was hired by Charles Mingus, with whom he played for 12 years. For his only concert in Switzerland, at the peak of his form, he is at the Apple Tree with his dazzling regular quartet.
