Don Cherry created an influential legacy by contrasting his bebop spiced jazz with free jazz and world music.
His arrangements juxtaposed instrumental experimentation with the ancient musical traditions of the lands he traveled. His individual blend of bebop marinated in exotic musical structures and instruments emphasized artistic expression over technical prowess. Here he is performing live at the Days of Jazz in Stuttgart.
