Don Cherry: Black Gypsy, Folk Dreams
Vivien Goldman, Melody Maker, 22 September 1979
Probably the only person who isn't surprised to find Don Cherry playing on the Slits' tour is Cherry himself. Since his apprenticeship with free-jazz guru Ornette Coleman, the trumpeter has pursued a fascinating multi-ethnic career which centres around his house in Norway. VIVIEN GOLDMAN watched him work and play.
