Don Cherry: Mu, Parts 1 & 2 / Orient (CD: Charly, 2 CDs)
Acknowledged as one of the fathers of World music, Don Cherry is also one of the most important jazz musicians of his era. Having played with musicians as diverse as Ornette Coleman and Lou Reed, the multi-instrumentalist further developed and enriched his unique sound through his extensive travels throughout the world.

This deluxe 2CD set comprises three of his finest albums recorded in France for the BYG Actuel label. The first disc features the albums 'MU first part' and 'MU second part'. These two albums, recorded in 1969, showcase Cherry's unique sound, with drummer Ed Blackwell providing accompaniment. The second disc contains the ‘Orient’ album, which captures Cherry in a live trio set in which he is accompanied by the great Dutch drummer Han Bennink and the South African bassist Johnny Dyani. In the album’s four extended pieces, their playing reflects Cherry’s passion for global culture, touching on elements of Indonesian gamelan, Indian Karnatic singing and the rhythms of Africa and American Indian rituals.

The digibook package includes a photo-laden booklet with in-depth notes. (Proper Music)

Don Cherry & Ed Blackwell: El Corazon (CD: ECM Touchstones)Don Cherry & Ed Blackwell: El Corazon (CD: ECM Touchstones)
“The trumpeter sketches a succession of melodies and moods around and over the rich textural detail and earthy solidity of Mr Blackwell’s drumming,” noted Robert Palmer in The New York Times. “The melodies come from Spain, Africa, Jamaica and the modern jazz compositions of Thelonious Monk, but Mr Cherry and Mr Blackwell transform them into a personal music that is as urbane and international as they are. Together, they make El Corazón one of the most impressive duet albums of recent years.” This magical 1982 album, overflowing with character, has remained the reference recording for trumpet and drums duos.

Don Cherry & Latif Khan: Music / Sangam (CD: Heavenly Sweetness)Don Cherry & Latif Khan: Music / Sangam (CD: Heavenly Sweetness)
‘Music / Sangam’ was definitely the most unjustly neglected of all Don Cherry’s albums before Heavenly Sweetness reissued it. The album was recorded in 1978 in Paris and was only released in France. It was the first meeting between Don Cherry and Indian percussionist Latif Khan and the result is an incredible mixture of jazz and Indian music – one of the finest examples of multi-cultural music making.
