Blank Records releases two Don Cherry vinyls that were presumed lost as well as a book and exhibition dedicated to the work of Don and Moki Cherry.
Two treasures have recently been discovered in the Swedish Jazz Archive: The Summer House Sessions by Don Cherry, which was recorded as part of jam sessions during the Swedish summer of 68’ and Organic Music Theatre: Châteauvallon Jazz Festival, a project led by Don and Moki.
For this latter project, the family was accompanied on stage by a puppet troupe and members of the public in a landscape adorned by Moki Cherry’s hand-made tapestries. The Blank Forms label offers the opportunity to learn more about this singular family by publishing a book dedicated to their family life as well as to their artistic practices. We find unpublished interviews with Don Cherry, as well as tributes from his daughter and granddaughter. Finally Blank Forms will organize an exhibition highlighting the Cherry family’s collaborations in New York City in Spring 2021.
