Don Cherry Kick

November 16th, 2008 by Holly

I’ve fund quite a few really great Don Cherry recordings over the past couple of months:

Tibet – This is a great album from Cherry when he was living in Europe and incorporating more global influences into the music along with his progressive-jazz style of trumpet playing.

Live at Cafe Montmartre 1966, Vol. 2
Live at Cafe Montmarte 1966 Vol. 2 – Another great live recording from 1966 when Cherry was playing with a group that included Gato Barbieri (at the high point (musically) of his career (in my humble opinion)).

Bitter Funeral Beer Band with Don Cherry and K. Sridhar Live in Frankfurt ‘82 – Another great session with Cherry guest starring with a larger ‘world music’ ensemble.
