A celebration of the life and musical legacy of the extraordinary musician, American Jazz trumpeter Don Cherry.

This once in a life time performance will feature Kahil El'Zabar's legendary Ethnic Heritage Ensemble, (Corey Wilkes on trumpet, Alex Harding on baritone sax, and El’Zabar on percussion), with very special guests; legendary LA vocalist Dwight Trible, and the eldest son of Don Cherry the internationally renown pianist David Ornette Cherry, his sister the iconic Neneh Cherry, her daughter Naima Karlsson, and Mexican pianist Ana Ruiz who collaborated with Don Cherry in the seventies

Noted for his long association with saxophonist Ornette Coleman, which began in the late 1950s, Cherry was a pioneer in world fusion music in the 1960s

Performed following the Don Cherry tribute album set to be released this autumn on Spiritmuse records, this show will display a creative homage to legendary trumpeter’s work with this extraordinary lineup of musicians.

Little can compare to a performance by Kahil El’Zabar’s Ethnic Heritage Ensemble. It’s part jazz concert, part public paroxysm, part spiritual communion.
