The late trumpeter Don Cherry had and still has a huge influence on the creative music scene, from his work with Ornette, Coltrane, Old And New Dreams, CODONA, and Carla Bley to his exploration and fusion of world music. That influence led Italian drummer/percussionist, Cristiano Calcagnile, to form an ensemble to perform a tribute to Cherry back in 2014. That morphed into a recording, Multikulti Cherry On, then more performances, and now a new release in the same vein, The Gift Of Togetherness. Both are featured in this episode.
There's also music from a handful of new releases from Swedish multi-reedist Alberto Pinton and his new Sestetto Contemporaneo, the Four Visions Saxophone Quartet, Earprint, John Yao & Triceratops, drummer Dor Herskovits and the Sfyria Trio. All the spaces are filled in nicely with other great music. Enjoy!!!

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
