He is a singular voice who has never sacrificed the fluidity of his melody making, and is held in high esteem by musicians both long seasoned and young." –Stanley Crouch, New York Times
Charles McPherson Andrea Canter

"The real fact of the matter is that everybody has been influenced by Charlie Parker. Charlie Parker is like Bach. So it would be like saying people that have heard Bach are influenced by Bach. Well, of course you are because certain people have added so much to the language that it becomes part of the language. ..Yes, you are influenced, even if you don’t know it. Twenty-five generations removed, you are because his language is in the language".-  Charles McPherson form a Jazz Police interview by Maxwell Chandler

August is Charlie Parker Month at the Jazz Showcase. From Thursday, August 6th through Sunday, August 9th the Jazz Showcase will present  bebop/hard bop master Charles McPherson with quartet. This is real jazz, pure and simple by one of its finest practitioners. As long as bebop masters like McPherson are still playing, Bird lives.
