You could waste a lot of time trying to come up with an appropriate genre for Codona. Free World Jazz? Raga Bop? Fusion Beat? Whatever you decide to call it, the music that Collin Walcott, Don Cherry and Nana Vasconcelos made together is positively sublime. The trio made three records for ECM in the late 70s/early 80s, and they’re all worth your time. This Swiss live recording from 1978 captures Codona in full flight, with Walcott’s sitar, Cherry’s trumpet and Vaconcelos’ percussion weaving a magical web. Not to get too hippie-dippie on you here, but it’s pure joy transformed into sound, for real, bros.
