One of the fathers of World music, multi-instrumentalist Don Cherry is also one of the most important jazz musicians of his era, having played with musicians as diverse as Ornette Coleman and Lou Reed . This deluxe 2CD set includes three of his finest albums recorded in France for the BYG Actuel label. The first disc features the albums 'MU first part' and 'MU second part', recorded in 1969, which showcase Cherry's unique sound, with drummer Ed Blackwell providing accompaniment. The second disc contains the 'Orient' album, which captures Cherry in a live trio set in which he is accompanied by the great Dutch drummer Han Bennink and the South African bassist Johnny Dyani. In the album's four extended pieces, their playing reflects Cherry's passion for global culture, touching on elements of Indonesian gamelan, Indian Karnatic singing and the rhythms of Africa and American Indian rituals. The 2-CD luxury digibook package includes a photo-laden booklet with in-depth notes.
