Don Cherry - Hilversum 1966

Here then is Don Cherry's magnificient 1966 quintet, a band featuring musicians from North and South America as well as from Europe. ESP Disk' has released three single discs, collecting this band's radio broadcasts from Copenhagen's Jazzhus Montmartre - highly recommended!

For more on Don Cherry, check out wiki, or the discography by Johann Haidenbauer hosted on daughter Neneh's site. Furthermore, there's a great site listing Cherry's unissued and unofficial recordings here.

By the way, it's not that easy to find photos of Don, as there's some fool (a used to be hockey player it seems) that goes by the same name and loves wearing disgustingly ugly suits...
