Kirk Knuffke “Cherryco” (SCCD 31832)

SCCD 31832 Kirk Knuffke “Cherryco”

The winner of Downbeat Magazine’s “Rising Star” critics poll 2015 cornetist and composer Kirk Knuffke is presenting here his interpretation of compositions by the two iconic practitioners of 60’s free jazz movement Don Cherry and Ornette Coleman. For Kirk – being identified himself with new jazz – who had known Coleman in his late years personally, this engaging tribute is an axiom.

One of modern jazz’s most skilled navigators of the divide between inside and outside, freedom and swing“, he has “full command of his most demanding instrument…” – (All About Jazz)
