Musician

Don Cherry

Born:

Don Cherry was born in Oklahoma City, OK in 1936 and raised in Los Angeles, where he first began to play the trumpet and later piano. According to Cherry, his upbringing had everything to do with his interest in music: "Yeah, well I was fortunate to have such great parents…because they've always been around music. My Father was a bartender, and he was very much into the music of the swing period. That whole groove of music and ballrooms and dance and what it meant in the late 30's and up into the 40s. So I was raised around all that type of music. But what was happening after especially moving to Watts, what was happening in our neighborhood, there was musicians…Dexter Gordon, Wardell Grey, Sonny Criss, all these people that were from the neighborhood…and what was happening in rhythm and blues…" Don cut his teeth on bebop, like most young musicians of his generation

Unconventional Instruments

Read "Unconventional Instruments" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


ECM regularly tops lists of the best jazz labels though their full name--Edition of Contemporary Music--would argue for a broader scope of content. A substantial number of their most popular albums, such as Carla Bley's Escalator Over The Hill (1974), Egberto Gismonti: Dança Dos Escravos (1989), Nils Petter Molvær's Khmer (1997), and many more, are not ...

Umbria Jazz 2021

Read "Umbria Jazz 2021" reviewed by Libero Farnè


Perugia Varie sedi 09--18/07/2021 Fra i molti festival jazz che si sono affollati e sovrapposti nei mesi di giugno e luglio, probabilmente Umbria Jazz è quello che più ha sofferto della situazione pandemica. L'impossibilità di organizzare i concerti gratuiti nel centro storico, la mancanza di turismo, la defezione, anche all'ultimo minuto, di ...

Cortex: Legal Tender

Read "Legal Tender" reviewed by Mark Corroto


The Norwegian quartet Cortex answers the question, what would have happened if the Wynton Marsalis and Branford Marsalis, had advanced the jazz canon instead of looking backwards for inspiration. Remember when the two young lions burst onto the scene in the 1980s with their self-righteous mission to save jazz? They did so by stuffing it, much ...

Albert Ayler Quartet with Don Cherry: European Recordings Autumn 1964 Revisited

Read "European Recordings Autumn 1964 Revisited" reviewed by Chris May


Many attempts have been made to locate the source of tenor saxophonist Albert Ayler's muse in American history and culture. Among the less outlandish suggestions are the field hollers of slaves toiling on Southern plantations and the Pentecostal church's tradition of talking in tongues. Given the importance Ayler's parents placed on him attending church as a ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
