Symphony for Improvisers (1967)

A luminous lineup makes this one of the most intense projects in Cherry's discography. Fluidity and propulsion don't stand on the way of melody, and despite the fiery energy of the ensemble the dominant tone is one of space, balance and emotional depth. Two joyful pieces in which convergence and unison are insistently played against ecstatic or open events.

Don Cherry - Cornet
Edward Blackwell - Drums
Gato Barbieiri - Tenor Sax
Pharaoh Sanders - Tenor Sax, Piccolo
Karl Berger - Vibraphone, Piano
Henry Grimes, J.F. Jenny-Clark - Bass
