7:30 pm - $25, $20 (for members of harwood and Taos Jazz Bebop Society
Taos Jazz Bebop Society and the Harwood present the Charles McPherson Quartet. McPherson is one of the living treasures of the bebop era. A Charlie Parker disciple who brings his own lyricism to the bebop language, McPherson is known best for his many years playing with Charles Mingus. Charles McPherson has been an important figure in modern mainstream jazz for more than 35 years.
He is currently touring the Southwest supported by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant from the Western Jazz Presenters Group. This is a rare opportunity to see one of bebop’s greatest artists in an intimate setting. But this is not McPherson’s first Taos performance. The last one was 25 years ago! We are really happy to be able to bring him back.
