DON CHERRY/JAMES ULMER/RASHIED ALI
Holy mother of cripes! Who woulda thought this existed? Well it does, so enjoy! So far as I know (and tell me if I'm wrong, hopefully w/ a copy of the LP attached), Cherry never released anything w/ Ulmer, though they were obviously playing together in Sweden in the early '70s, where I assume this studio set was recorded, since Cherry was living there at the time and the subtitles feature a whole lotta umlauts and crossed "O"s, and the audience is a rag-tag collection of liberal, blonde and existentially-challenged young folks. Now if you can't get into this, then I don't wanna know you!
