Charles McPhersonToday's Man ... CD
Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1973. New Copy ... $13.99
A great document of the more soulful shift made by Charles McPherson in the 70s – and an album that features his moody alto work set amidst a slightly larger group – filled with great players that include Chris Woods on flute, Richard Williams and Cecil Bridewater on trumpet, Frank Wess on tenor sax, Garnett Brown on trombone, and Barry Harris on piano. The tracks are deceptively easygoing, but swing with a nice spiritual soul jazz undercurrent – and McPherson blows in some warm, open modes that really grab us on the best tunes. Includes a great version of "Naima", plus the tracks "Bell Bottoms", "Cheryl", "Invitation", and "Charisma". CD
(Part of the Mainstream Records Master Collection!)

Charles McPherson with Steve KuhnBut Beautiful ... CD
Venus (Japan), 2004. Used ... $29.99
Forget the cheesy cover, because this is a wonderful little album – one of the finest in recent years from Charles McPherson, and a key document of this stunning later chapter in his career! The album's got a laidback and soulful approach – often with a hint of weary sadness – in a tone that's quite different than McPherson's boppish work of the early days, or his confident soul jazz of the 70s. The group's a piano trio led by Steve Kuhn, who turns out to be a perfect accompanist to McPherson for this mellow set of ballads and gentle numbers. In a way, the feel of the set is similar to some of Archie Shepp's ballad work of the late 70s – and features tracks that include "Be My Love", "My Ideal", "Love Letters", "I Didn't Know What Time It Was", and "I'll Never Stop Loving You".

✨✧ Kevin Mahogany with Charles McPherson & Jimmy KnepPussy Cat Dues – The Music Of Charles Mingus ... CD
Enja (Germany), 1995. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A really unusual vocal tribute to the music of Charles Mingus – sung by the enigmatic Kevin Mahogany, and performed with the WDR Big Band with solos by ex-Mingusites Charles McPherson and Jimmy Knepper! Mingus isn't necessarily known for his vocal compositions, but the few songs he left behind in the format are incredibly compelling – tracks that express the deeper emotions and sentiments that bubble under the instrumental passages of his work. Mahogany sings Mingus' words on "Eclipse" and "Portrait", scats a bit on "Pussy Cat Dues", throws in Roland Kirk's lyrics to "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" to a larger "Mingus Medley", and sits things out for instrumental readings of "Reincarnation Of A Lovebird" and "Tonight At Noon".

✨✧ Charles McPhersonQuintet/Live! ... CD
Prestige/OJC, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of soul jazz from McPherson – recorded live, with a rolling groove that's in the Blue Note mode of the mid 60s – but even more open overall! The group's got a lot of hometown talent from McPherson's native Detroit – including Barry Harris on piano, Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Ray McKinney on bass – and the mighty Billy Higgins handles the drums, always with a lean and fluid groove that works well with the extended energy of the set! McPherson's horn is sometimes a bit overshadowed by Hillyer's trumpet on the head arrangements – but given how much we like Lonnie, that's hardly a bad thing – and Charles more than comes into his own on the solos! The album features a catchy original called "The Viper", plus the tracks "Suddenly", "Shaw Nuff", and "Never Let Me Go". CD

Charles MingusLet My Children Hear Music (2LP 180 gram 45 RPM) ... LP
Columbia/ORG, 1973. Sealed 2LP Gatefold ... $39.99
One of the last great records by Charles Mingus – a set of extremely compelling original compositions, played by a fresh group of younger players, plus a few older masters! The record's got a fire and sense of emotion that's missing from a number of other 70s Mingus sessions – and it's one of the few later albums we'd easily rank right up there with his late 50s and early 60s classics! Orchestrations were partially arranged and conducted with help from Sy Johnson – and soloists include James Moody and Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Snookie Young and Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Roland Hanna on piano. Titles include "The Shoes Of The Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive Ass Slippers", "Adagio Ma Non Troppo", "The Chill of Death", and "The I Of Hurricane Sue". LP, Vinyl record album

Charles Tolliver & Music Inc.Impact (Strata East) (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Strata East/Bomba (Japan), 1975. Used ... $33.99
One of a few large group sessions recorded by Charles Tolliver during his years on Strata East – and an amazingly spiritual effort that really brings together the best strands of sounds running through the underground at the time! The format's a bit similar to Tolliver's previous Music Inc big band album for Strata, released 5 years before – with lots of strong lead action from Charles on trumpet, and Stanley Cowell on piano. But this time around, the larger group seems to be more fully integrated into the tunes – there not just to support the soloists, but to rise up with a full, proud sense of majesty that's really amazing. Other players include Cecil McBee and Reggie Workman on basses, Billy Parker and Warren Smith on percussion, Jon Faddis and Jimmy Owens on trumpets, John Gordon and Garnet Brown on trombones, and Charles McPherson, George Coleman, Harold Vick, and Charles Davis on saxes! Titles include great versions of the Tolliver classics "Plight" and "Impact" – plus "Mother Wit", "Lynnsome", and "Grand Max". CD

✨✧ Charles MingusComplete Town Hall Concert ... CD
Blue Note, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A legendary work – featuring Charles Mingus' great and chaotic Town Hall concert, one of those special events that achieved legendary status before it even started – not just because of the range of great musicians involved, but because the whole set was barely off the ground by the time it began! The set features a brilliant set of arrangements that Mingus barely copied and handed around before the show started – but that hardly stopped the music from being great, because everyone plays magnificently, especially Jerome Richardson and Charles McPherson, who was hitting a really great period here with Mingus. Tracks include "Epitaph", "Clark in the Dark", "Freedom", and "My Search". The CD also features the first full version of the concert – with many previously unissued tracks! CD

✨✧ Charles MingusLet My Children Hear Music/Charles Mingus & Friends In Concert (3CD set) ... CD
Columbia/BGO (UK), 1972/1973. Used 3 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A pair of 70s giants from Charles Mingus – some of his best material of the decade! First up is Let My Children Hear Music – one of the last great records by Charles Mingus – a set of extremely compelling original compositions, played by a fresh group of younger players, plus a few older masters! The record's got a fire and sense of emotion that's missing from a number of other 70s Mingus sessions – and it's one of the few later albums we'd easily rank right up there with his late 50s and early 60s classics! Orchestrations were partially arranged and conducted with help from Sy Johnson – and soloists include James Moody and Bobby Jones on tenor, Charles McPherson on alto, Snookie Young and Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Roland Hanna on piano. Titles include "The Shoes Of The Fisherman's Wife Are Some Jive Ass Slippers", "Adagio Ma Non Troppo", "The Chill of Death", and "The I Of Hurricane Sue". Charles Mingus & Friends In Concert is a wonderful set – a double-length album that's great all the way through! Mingus live is always a treat – especially in these later years, when the fire seemed to go out of most of his studio recordings. Live, though, he always managed to kick it hard - with the sort of emotion that graced his strong early albums. And despite the fact that this one's conducted by Teo Macero, and features some remarks from Bill Cosby – the affair's still pretty hip, and the soloists go to town nicely – with those stretched-out performances that always made for the best individual moments in a Mingus record! The record features great work from Gene Ammons and Bobby Jones on tenor, Lee Konitz and Charles McPherson on alto, James Moody on flute, Randy Weston on piano, Lonnie Hillyer on trumpet, and Eddie Bert on trombone – and Honey Gordon sings a lovely vocal on the track "Eclipse". Other titles include "Jump Monk", "Us Is Two", "ESP", and "Ecclusiastics". CD

✨✧ Charles MingusReincarnation Of A Lovebird (Prestige – aka Blue Bird/Pithecanthropus Erectus) ... LP
Prestige/America, 1970. Used 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Two great sides of Mingus, recorded in France in 1970 and originally issued on America records. The group's a smallish one, featuring Mingus stalwart Dannie Richmond on drums and Jaki Byard on piano, plus Charles McPherson, Bobby Jones and Eddie Preston up front. These sides offer ample proof that he could still drive his band into a raging inferno of pent-up tones, colors, and feelings, even at this later point in his career. 6 tracks in all, with lengthy takes of Mingus' "Reincarnation Of A Lovebird" and "Pithycanthropus Erectus", and two more originals "Peggy's Blue Skylight" and "Love Is A Dangerous Beauty", a great reading of Bird's "Blue Bird" plus the standard "I Left My Heart In San Francisco".

Jim MarshallJazz Festival – Jim Marshall's Defining Photographs Of The 1960s Jazz Scene (hardcover) ... Book

Artists captured include Charles Mingus, Mary Lou Williams, Ben Webster, Muddy Waters, Charles McPherson, Jackie McLean, Wes Montgomery, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Dave Pike, Don Cherry, Gerry Mulligan, Scott LaFaro, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley, and dozens of others – and the book is very heavy and oversized – 336 pages, hardcover, in vivid black and white.

Red RodneyBird Lives ... CD
Muse, 1973. Used ... $12.99
Charlie Parker may live again in the title of this set – but given the strengths of the group, the album would be great even without a reference to Bird! The setting's a bop one, as you'd guess – but there's also a lot more going on here too, given that some of the tunes are longer and open – and almost show some of the maturation of all the players on the date – especially saxophonist Charles McPherson and pianist Barry Harris, both of whom got their start with boppish ideas, but who were really branching out by the time of this early 70s session. The quintet also features some excellent rhythm from Sam Jones on bass and Roy Brooks on drums – both players who bring plenty of fresh ideas to the table – and Red Rodney's work on trumpet has lots of earthy notes that show a strong sense of personality too. Titles include "Big Foot", "I'll Remember April", "Donna Lee", "Chasing The Bird", "Round Midnight", and "52nd Street Theme". CD
