In the same year that composer/multi-instrumentalist Don Cherry recorded his milestone Complete Communion, he took his cornet to the studio of Danish National Radio. Cherry had established himself by the early 1960s, playing with Steve Lacy, Ornette Coleman, Paul Bley, John Coltrane, Charlie Haden, Archie Shepp, Albert Ayler and Ed Blackwell. Copenhagen began a long reign as a Northern European jazz mecca in the 1950s. In 1966 Cherry began a residency at that city's iconic Café Montmartre and recorded these previously unreleased tracks during an earlier session at the Danish Broadcasting Corporation facility. On Cherry Jam, a vinyl EP from London-based Gearbox Records, Cherry is joined by four local musicians who while more than capable, are unfamiliar names outside their country.
