medjuck Posted September 13, 2021 Report Share Posted September 13, 2021 The liner notes to a Savoy cd which includes 3 cuts from Archie Shepp and the New York Contemporary 5 state that Curson "had been recruited by Charles Mingus in 1960 to play in the style of Don Cherry". Is this widely known? Has it been published elsewhere? I was familiar with Curson before I'd ever heard any Don Cherry because he often played Montreal when I moved there in 1961. (I saw Mingus sit in with him at least once.) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
