Digitally remastered two CD set contains a trio of albums from the Jazz/World Music pioneer. The first disc features the albums MU First Part and MU Second Part. These two albums, recorded in 1969, showcase Cherry's unique sound, with drummer Ed Blackwell providing accompaniment. The second disc contains the Orient album, which captures Cherry in a live trio set in which he is accompanied by the great Dutch drummer Han Bennink and the South African bassist Johnny Dyani. In the album's four extended pieces, their playing reflects Cherry's passion for global culture, touching on elements of Indonesian gamelan, Indian Karnatic singing and the rhythms of Africa and American Indian rituals.
