The subject of today's profile was Charles Tolliver, trumpeter, composer, arranger, bandleader, and co-founder of Strata-East, one of the first artist-owned labels in jazz. This survey of his music passed from his early sides with Jackie McLean and the Gerald Wilson Orchestra to his big-band arrangements as leader of Music Inc. in the 70's.

We heard from Weston as a leader beginning with his earliest small group recordings, then through live festival dates, large ensemble pieces arranged by collaborator Melba Liston, and solo piano recordings.
