Jazz Bastard Podcast 132 - Charles McPherson Interview
January 10, 2018
We depart from our usual format to offer an interview with saxophone player and composer Charles McPherson. Charles discusses an early encounter with Charlie Parker, lessons from Barry Harris, a wild first night employed by Charles Mingus, what bebop means to him, and several other topics. We don't focus on particular albums, but Charles recommends, among others, TODAY'S MAN, SIKU YA BIBI, and THE JOURNEY as places to begin to get to know his playing, if you don't already.
