Entertainment Reviews:

Down Beat - p.88
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Cherry states motifs, Barbieri counterstates heroically and Berger comps spikily; propelled by strong free-bop grooves from Stief and Romano..."
JazzTimes - p.77
"The playing is consistently exquisite with Cherry in top form....This is music that matters, and is highly recommended."

Product Description:

Personnel includes: Don Cherry (trumpet); Gato Barbieri (tenor saxophone); Karl Berger (vibraphone); Bo Stief (bass); Aldo Romano (drums).
Recorded at Cafe Montmartre, Copenhagen, Denmark in 1966.
Don Cherry (Trumpet): Don Cherry (trumpet); Gato Barbieri (saxophone); Karl Berger (vibraphone); Bo Stief (bass guitar); Aldo Romano (drums).
Best known for his work alongside avant-garde pioneer Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry also led a solo career that fused the revolutionary aspects of free jazz with a deep interest in the music of Africa, Asia, and other cultures. LIVE AT CAF? MONTMARTRE 1966 is a testament to the trumpeter's diverse, boundary-pushing aesthetic. These five tracks find Cherry and his quintet working largely in a modal framework, building simple phrases into complex rhythmic entities that unfurl with the help of wild improvisation and frenetic energy. The music bears a resemblance to the music Cherry made with Coleman in the early '60s, yet maintains Cherry's unique international influence, giving it a flavorful edge.
