Charles Tolliver, the co-founder of Strata East, a label of great artistic quality, made his debut with Blue Note in 1964. Fifty years on, the trumpeter celebrates the anniversary with a brand new quintet.

'It's Time': with this aptly-named recording Charles Tolliver made his entrance on the jazz scene in 1964, under the patronage of Jackie McLean. Three years later he joined Max Roach's quartet, where he met a young pianist, Stanley Cowell. In 1971, they founded Strata East, an emblematic label of the soul jazz years with albums by Pharoah Sanders, Gil Scott-Heron, Clifford Jordan... Tolliver also contributed critically acclaimed recordings, influenced by bop and rhythm'n'blues, as well as new thing and soul. This legend of jazz is making his comeback, after years out of the limelight. 'It's Time!'
Self-taught trumpet player and veteran of the American jazz scene for over half a century, Charles Tolliver is a dashing young man of 72 and unsung hero of jazz history discovered during the Banlieues Bleues Festival. Charles Tolliver has perfected a highly personal one-of-a-kind sound, making him one of the leading jazz trumpeters of his generation.
