David Ornette Cherry grew up in Watts, California, David was born the same year Ornette Coleman and Don Cherry recorded their first
album, SOMETHIN ELSE. The ambient music streaming through his childhood was generated by the early collaborations of his dad, Don Cherry, with Coleman and the musicians who visited his parents' Mariposa Avenue home in Los Angeles.
I had a chance to sit down with David while is short stay in Los Angeles,
Also his friend and bass player Olie Elder Jr. They talk about their musical roots growing up in Watts, Who influence them and why they love this music, I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
Recorded June 19, 2013 at a rehearsal hall in LA.
