Charles McPherson interviewed by Pablo Held

Saxophonist Charles McPherson is a living legend, a musician of the highest order . I’ve learned a lot by listening to him play (and speak!) over the years. When I got the chance to interview him as part of the Mingus100 Festival at @stadtgartenkoeln , I was delighted!
