Very Rare 1985 release by the legendary Don Cherry. The connection between the spacey jazz trumpet of Don Cherry, and the later urban funk of his daughter Nenah, always seems a bit weak – until you hear this 1985 effort, which has Cherry working in a strange mix of contemporary rhythms and his older funkier styles. Cherry actually lays down vocals on a number of tracks, in a self conscious bluesy sort of way that's almost in a pomo kitschy style. The effect doesn't always work, but there's more than a few interesting moments on the LP. Titles include "Art Deco", "Call Me", "Rappin Recipie", and "Treat Your Lady Right".
