Beautiful Swimmers from Washington D.C. present a brilliant tribute mix to Don Cherry, the multi-instrumentalist best known for playing the cornet & pocket trumpet with the likes of John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman. Whether this is an introduction to his vast catalogue of “world” jazz recordings or just a new way of hearing some of it, we hope you enjoy it.
