In A Mellow Tone

In A Mellow Tone
Wednesday June 23rd, 2010 with Ron Sweetman
Sonny Rollins/Don Cherry Quartet

SONNY ROLLINS/DON CHERRY QUARTET: The unlikely partnership between be-bop tenor saxophonist and avant-garde trumpeter Don Cherry gave us some of the most adventurous soloing that Rollins has ever recorded, and some of the most lyrical trumpet we ever heard from Don Cherry. The partnership ran from July 1962 to February 1963. Our coverage of this partnership concludes with the January 1963 Copenhagen concert by Sonny Rollins, Don Cherry, Henry Grimes and Billy Higgins.
