Artist: Don Cherry
Don Cherry (1936-1995) created an influential legacy by contrasting his Bebop-style Jazz with genres such as Free Jazz and World music. His rise to prominence came in the late 1950s performing Free Jazz with Ornette Coleman. Their music not only shook up the Jazz community with their avant garde sound and inventive compositional structure, but became part of the liberating social revolution that resonated in 1960s American culture.

"...one of the most lyrical and important jazz trumpeters"
- Peter Watrous, The New York Times

  Cherry's interest expanded beyond the gamut of American styles into exotic musical structure and composition. His arrangements often juxtaposed instrumental experimentation with the solemn and ancient musical traditions of the ethnic lands he traveled. Cherry's Bebop-infused solos provided the controversial genre with a traditional Jazz sensibility, helping to maintain an enduring Jazz narrative.


“Mr. Cherry has integrated chant-like modal melodies, the tonal flexibility of 
  Mr. (Ornette) Coleman's approach, the harmonic and rhythmic elaborations of 
 be-bop, and an encyclopedic knowledge of non-Western music into a personal 
 style of persuasive originality and depth.
” - Robert Palmer, The New York Times

When Don Cherry died, he left behind one of the most unique legacies in Jazz. His individual blend of Jazz, soaked in exotic musical structures and instruments, emphasized artistic expression over technical prowess; and his vanguard sensibilities created a contemporary style and depth all his own. Vibrantly joyful, thoughtfully spiritual, and musically eccentric, Don Cherry fused the ancient with the modern and the avant garde with the traditional, cementing his legacy as a Jazz original and a forefather of the musical globalization known today as World Music.
