North Fork’s Jazz Great, Capt. Teddy Charles Dies

Some of you have probably seen his skipjack, the PILGRIM

Teddy Charles, who during a career as a pioneering jazz musician played with Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and other legendary performers, died Monday at Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead at age 84.

More recently, Mr. Charles, a former Greenporter who lived in Riverhead for the past eight years, was known for his love of the sea and as Captain Ted Charles owned and operated the skipjack Pilgrim out of Greenport Harbor. He was considered by many to be the most experienced owner-operator of commercial sailing charters on the east coast, sailing extensively from Martha’s Vineyard to the Caribbean.
