When Don Cherry left the U.S. for Europe in the early sixties, he was one of many. His time in Europe was one of growth for him as a band leader which would later serve him well when he reunited with Ed Blackwell who had been spending time in Africa. It was when we heard Cherry and Blackwell working together on Mu and El Corazon that we knew it was in Europe that we would find our way to Africa. Afro-Love is a genre that looks to the inescapable influence of Africa on Jazz. Afro Love is African music infused with Jazz and Jazz music suffused with Africa.
