Don Cherry Videos: Documentary & Session

Famous cornetist whose career began with a long association with Ornette Coleman, he collaborated with many great, great musicians such as Coltrane, Ayler, Rollins, Sun Ra, Shepp, Haden, Blackwell and others. He later got into spiritual stuff and african and eastern roots music. He was known for playing the pocket-trumpet all the time; not for being Neneh's stepfather and Eagle-Eye's father.

A 20 minutes documentary shot in Sweden where he lived. Parts 1&2.

Seven part film with bass and percutian, and Cherry playin' da piano, da trumpet and singin'. This one is roughly an hour long.
