David Ornette Cherry, son of the late avant-garde trumpeter Don Cherry, writes, arranges and improvises invigoratingly fresh and thick, sweet textured music from sunrise to sunset. In 2003, he received the ASCAP- Chamber Music America Award for Adventurous Programming of Contemporary Music. The melodies that arise from Cherry’s jazz, classical, African, world music background, and from playing with some of the great jazz artists of our times, speak about our human experiences through the language of sound. A skilled player of the piano, melodica and dousn' gounn, Cherry sees himself drawing from the past to build a passageway to jazz of the future.
