Great tribute! The music is swinging and dancing, sophisticated and still a little crazy, just as it should be! Jamie Breiwick plays with a beautiful warm tone and Don Cherry's tunes are simple but full of meaning. Highly recommended!
Favorite track: Brown Rice.

This quintet has acquired legendary status as a working unit...all the musicians are exemplary at their craft and DD is one of my 'Big5'...he is an exquisite composer of both depth and breadth of vision...you can instantly recognise Dave's DNA in a tune...what's more, you feel there is also so much more to come!;his powers of expression are so special.
These compositions are from the heart and I can only suggest that you take them to yours...
