Also,there�s a great Cherry album called "Actions" which was recorded

And of course, all the Ornette Coleman records with Cherry are well
worth exploring, most of all "The Shape of Jazz to Come" and "This is

Satchinanada" and his own "Black Unity". Journey is very heavily
indluenced by indian music, and Sanders plays adorably on that one.
"unity" is one long piece ,very percussive and very dense.

I don�t have to mention you need "Ascension" and "Meditations" by
Coltrane, do I ?
I hope this may be of some use to you,
