Don Cherry

Complete Communion

Jazz Christmas Eve isn't the obvious date for a Blue Note recording session but it was the night before Christmas in 1965 when Don Cherry Gato Barbieri on tenor saxophone Henry Grimes on bass and Edward Blackwell were at Rudy Van Gelder's studio in Englewood Cliffs to recordnbspComplete Communion The 29 yearold had already recorded extensively with Ornette Coleman's group and led a couple of sessions for other labels but this was his personal breakthrough and something of a breakthrough for the whole freejazz movement Grimes and Blackwell the rhythm section were like the other two musicians both new to the label making this a unique recording for Blue Note This album reflects the changing face of jazz during the mid1960s and its freejazz style would become the norm as the decade wore on
