@ Jazz-Institut Darmstadt : :

@ Eagle Eyed Cherry website : Not only did he take part in the development of the free jazz idiom, but he was one of the first jazz musicians to seriously embrace other cultures, and develop a musical kind of multi-culturalism long before it became fashionable.

@last.fm : After leaving Coleman and playing with John Coltrane on The Avant-Garde (1961), he signed a deal with Blue Note records to release three albums. The first and most famous of these recordings, Complete Communion (1965), proved Cherry’s worth and originality as a composer by developing several different themes within each twenty minute piece and blurring the distinction between composition and improvisation.

@Discogs : Father of Eagle-Eye Cherry and stepfather of Neneh Cherry.
