"In the late 1960s, American trumpet player and free jazz pioneer Don Cherry (1936-1995) and Swedish visual artist and designer Moki Cherry (1943-2009) were for creative music. Imagine another space and start collaborating. By 1972, they had the concept of integrating Don's music, Moki's art, and family life in the Swedish country town of Trumpet into one integrated entity. I named it "Organic Music Theater".Recorded here is the premiere of the historic Organic Music Theater at the Festival of Jazz in Chateau Vallon, Southern France in 1972, recorded live on public television. It is a mastering of the tape that was made.A community where Don Cherry abandoned his jazz musician identity and later came to fruition in the "Organic Music Society," "Relativity Suite," "Brown Rice," and the soundtrack to Alejandro Jodorowski's "The Holy Mountain." It is a performance that heralds the beginning of a "mysterious" period.

Don Cherry's New Research musicians are from Brazil, Sweden, France and the United States and have gathered in Chateau Vallon from all over Europe. The five bands Don and Moki Cherry, Christer Bothén, Gérard "Doudou" Gouirand and Naná Vasconcelos performed in an outdoor amphitheater, with Swedish friends traveling with them and Christiania in Copenhagen on stage. More than a dozen adults and children participated, including the Danish puppet theater company Det Lilla Circus (The Little Circus).Moki's carpet is laid on the stage, and the handmade brightly colored tapestry depicting Indian scales contains the words Organic Music Theater to decorate the stage.Members of "Det Rila", led by Annie Hedvar, danced, sang, and performed an improvised puppet show on a high pole to the musician's performance.

Château Vallon's music aimed to be a universal language that connects people through songs.Don took an unprecedented move to abandon his favorite pocket trumpet, switch to a piano and reed organ, and release his voice as an instrument for shamanic guidance.In the meantime, uplifting and sacred songs from Mali, South Africa, Brazil and Native Americans, including songs from Don's albums "Organic Music Society" and "Home Boy (Sister Out)", were performed one after another. Grossolaria, which seems to be possessed by puppeteers, flies around. In "Relativity Suite, Part 1", Vasconcelos solos endlessly at Berimbau after Bothén plays Dongseo Ngoni (Mali's hunting guitar).In a whirlpool of microtonal music like wow, Vasconseros plays this Brazilian one-stringed instrument brilliantly, foreshadowing his activities as a member of the acclaimed group Kodna with Don.Also, in the performance of Jim Pepper's "Witchi Tai To", children's voices can be heard, creating a very friendly atmosphere.At the international jazz festival, a gathering of stars, the concert's laid-back, communal atmosphere is as Cherry's tries to show Don's jazz audience that he's moving forward. felt.But it also means that Don is warmly inviting the audience.

"In the late 1960s, the American trumpet player and free jazz pioneer Don Cherry (1936–1995) and the Swedish visual artist and designer Moki Cherry (1943–2009) began a collaboration that imagined an alternative space for creative music, most succinctly expressed in Moki's aphorism “the stage is home and home is a stage.” By 1972, they had given name to a concept that united Don's music, Moki's art, and their family life in rural Tagårp, Sweden into one holistic entity: Organic Music Theater. Captured here is the historic first Organic Music Theater performance from the 1972 Festival de jazz de Chateauvallon in the South of France, mastered from tapes recorded during its original live broadcast on public TV. A life-affirming, multicultural patchwork of borrowed tunes suffused with the hallowed aura of Don's extensive global travels, the performance documents the moment he publicly jettisoned his identity as a jazz musician, and represents the start of his communal “mystical” period, late r crystallized in recordings such as Organic Music Society, Relativity Suite, Brown Rice, and the soundtrack for Alejandro Jodorowsky's The Holy Mountain.

A vortex of wah-like microtonal rattling, Vasconcelos's masterful demonstration of this single-stringed Brazilian instrument is a harbi nger of his work to come as a member, with Don, of the acclaimed group Codona. The sounds of children playing on the ensemble's achingly tender rendition of Jim Pepper's oft-covered beacon of spiritual optimism, “Witchi Tai To,” lends the proceedings an especially intimate, domestic glow. Given the context of the star-studded international jazz festival, the concert's laid back, communal vibe feels like an attempt by the Cherrys to show Don's jazz audience that he was moving on. At the same time, however , Don was extending a warmhearted invitation for them to come along for the ride.
