2024 Stock. Huge Tip! Limited Edition 180g Classic Black Vinyl w/ Original Artwork & Insert. The new album by ‘Cosmic Nomad David Ornette Cherry in his father’s tradition, the legendary jazz innovator Don Cherry. This a mosaic of healing soundscapes blending spiritual jazz, leftfield electronica, Eastern & native, indigenous sounds into musical parallels that transport the listener through doorways of ancient pathways to futurist crossroads.

David Ornette Cherry talks about vision and approach and Don Cherry’s remarkable influence as an artist : “When I started my musical journey, my father, Don Cherry, took me under his wings. “To be an Artist/ Musician is a commitment, you must learn the music… own the music you create... and give it back. You must have a vision.”

“In my world, the piano, the keyboard, sounds of nature and numerous instruments of traditional peoples and those who reside in urban society, touch and effect each other with a calming and symbiotic fervour. I compose with the idea that all exist in a world of harmonies which mirror life evolving away from the chaotic (to the positive). There's not just a co-existence but a melding of forms to produce a single musical expression.”

This is a phenomenal, unique album, bringing together multi-genre funky, earthy Indigenous sounds, organic soundscapes and cosmic melodies that transport to a higher level where the Ancestors weave their magic and join the cosmic dance! 

"When I play I think of how the phrases move as a dance, or something in nature like a bird or a shooting star.” – Don Cherry
