Charles McPherson


Charles McPherson started playing jazz professionally at age 19. He moved from Detroit to New York in 1959 and performed with Charles Mingus from 1960 to 1972. While performing with Mingus, he collaborated frequently with Harris, Lonnie Hillyer (trumpet), and George Coleman (tenor sax).

McPherson has performed at concerts and festivals with his own variety of groups, consisting of quartets, quintets to full orchestras. He was featured at Lincoln Center showcasing his original compositions 15 years ago, and once again joined Wynton Marsalis and Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra in April, 2019 honoring his 80th Birthday, where they arranged and performed seven of Charles’ iconic original compositions.

McPherson has recorded as guest artist with Charlie Mingus, Barry Harris, Art Farmer, Kenny Drew, Toshiko Akiyoshi, the Carnegie Hall Jazz Orchestra, and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis.
