updated ( 2007-01-30)

The purpose of this site is to list information about unissued and unofficial recordings of Don Cherry.
It's a non-commercial fan project based on information from collectors.

If you have information about recordings that are not included here, please
contact me.
Any contributions, corrections and/or suggestions are welcome.

For a complete list of officially issued records, see Johann Haidenbauer's discography.
Without the information and corrections that I regulary receive from Johann, this site would be hopelessly inaccurate.

A big thanks goes to the following people, for their contribution to this site:
Jan Lohmann - Miles Davis Discographer, Michael McLaughlin, Christopher Carville,
Richard Legault, Richard Edelman, Larry Kanner, Bob Lambert, Johan Hauknes, David Drexler,
Henry Denander,
Brian Stack,
George Scala - Free Jazz Research

Details for the Sun Ra Allstars shows are taken from the Sun Ra Tapeography at Joe Moudrys excellent Saturn Web.

A big hand to Julien who run the official website of  Sonny Simmons and Bert Wilson who’s website can be reached here.

Listen to my podcast, "Melodiradion", always with some rare Cherry tunes

Any questions, feel free to contact me.

Some (usually)hard to find Don Cherry albums can be found at amazon.com...
