Caz Plak is thrilled to announce the global release of “Don Cherry Trio – The ORTF Recordings Paris 1971,” a vinyl LP that captures the legendary jazz musician Don Cherry in a sublime performance with his long-time Don Cherry Trio members: Turkish drummer Okay Temiz and South African bassist Johnny Dyani.

Recorded at the iconic ORTF studios (Office de Radiodiffusion Télévision Française)for the Sound and Vision program in Paris in 1971, this remarkable LP features one of the paramount Jazz figures of all time, Don Cherry, interpreting Turkish rhythms.

This release serves as the sequel to Okay Temiz’s magnum opus, ‘Okay Temiz’s Oriental Wind at Montreux Jazz Festival 1982’ LP, released worldwide by Caz Plak in 2022, and is the second chapter of Caz Plak’s ‘Turkish Jazz Trilogy’.

“Don Cherry Trio – The ORTF Recordings Paris 1971” LP is particularly significant as it predates Don Cherry’s groundbreaking “Organic Music Society” album from 1973, in which Okay Temiz also performed.
