Denver C. hosts tonight's feature on open-structured free jazz and Don Cherry, an artist whose sound is emblematic of the transition from free jazz into world and other music, and blues into jazz into rock into rap/hip-hop. Cherry's is jazz in the non-classical sense, marking the influence of the electronic age, instruments from Africa and Brazil, and modal structures from India. Nine to midnight on the Thursday Night Feature on WXYC, 89.3 FM!
