Cherry, Don – “”Mu” Second Part ” – [Get Back]

Don Cherry on a myriad of instruments (including bamboo flute, piano and the ever shrill powerhouse called the pocket trumpet – watch those levels) as well as percussionist stalwart, Ed Blackwell, create part two of the MU release. Recorded one day in Paris as an expatriate type of release on BYG records in 1969, MU is a minimal, tribalistic, peyote journey. Cherry defers to his voice at times for his primary instrument. It is impossible to not imagine African and American Indian rituals accompanying these tracks. Cherry and Blackwell work well together – as if they were one in the same. The record flows well from track to track. You can tell you’ve made a jump, but at the same time, I much prefer listening to the entire set as one giant piece.
