Trumpeter Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman forged an approach to jazz that was to stamp their creative mark on the evolution of American culture for ever. Their music, combined with the political and cultural upsurge of the Sixties provide a momentum, a dynamic that propelled Don Cherry into the international arena. Hear & Now, produced by Narada Michael Walden and featuring Don's long time partner Moki on tambura alongside musicians like saxophonist Michael Brecker, drummers Tony Williams and Lenny White, conguero Sammy Figueroa and bassist Marcus Miller, is an album of gently twisted fusion - an original platter of "world music.
