Mid-Century Modern!

Saxophonist Charles McPherson remains a respected and powerful force in jazz: “…one of the most potent musicians to emerge from Detroit’s mid-century cauldron of bebop” —Mark Stryk

McPherson’s passionate, expressive playing combines blazing bop, an adventurous sensibility, and a strong sense of the blues” —Bruce Powell

“With his wide-open sound, Mr. McPherson goes whizzing through his tunes – zig-zagging through be-bop filigrees, punching out blues lines and hooting warmly in the high register” —Jon Pareles

“Always inventive, Charles McPherson has kept the torch of Charlie Parker burning brightly without being stuck in the past” —Ronaldo Oregano

McPherson hones a personal approach to bebop’s rhythmic and harmonic idioms that makes everything he plays sound timeless, logical, and emotionally trenchant.” – Andrew Gilbert
