A Masterful Duo,
This review is from: Mu Vol.1 (Audio CD)
Don Cherry took part in the 1969 Actuel festival held at Amougie in Belgium along with Free Jazz stars 'The Art Ensemble Of Chicago', manic pianist 'Dave Burrel', drummer 'Sunny Murray' and the amazing Archie Shepp.
This LP and its sister Mu 2 were recorded at sessions on the 22nd August 1969 and represent a meeting of minds.
Ed Blackwell (ex Ornette) had just returned from Morocco were he had been absorbing the local music scene.
The interplay is fantastic as both men bounce ideas around Cherry switching to flute and piano as Blackwell runs through his arsenal of percussion.
If you liked Coltrane and Ali on Interstellar Space this should be your next stop.
