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!!!
