"Charles Brackeen (born 1940 in Oklahoma) is a jazz saxophonist who primarily plays tenor saxophone, but also plays soprano saxophone. He originally studied violin and piano before switching to saxophone. He played in a recording with members of the Ornette Coleman Quartet in 1968 and on Jazz Composer's Orchestra recordings by Don Cherry (1973), Leroy Jenkins (1975), and Paul Motian for ECM (1978 & 1979) but did not record anything else until 1987 when he produced three albums. He also has a quartet which produced Worshippers Come Nigh, among other works, in 1995."-Wikipedia
