5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album... April 12, 2004
By aaron
Format:Audio CD
I actually disagree with the previous comments slightly. This was the first Codona CD I have heard, and I much prefer it to Codona 3. It seems earthier, more delicate...extremely gorgeous, but still "out" enough to maintain interest (i.e. the jagged sporadic running lines Cherry lays over the mellow grooves...somehow all out and completely restrained). When i first heard this album, I listened through it twice in a row, and for days afterwards. I have yet to hear Codona 1, but I hope to soon. As of now, I STILL can't get enough of this disc, and it's been a while since I first heard it. Enjoy...

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, Inventive Music Making April 7, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had the three Codona LPs for decades and only recently purchased them all on CD. The trio, Collin Walcott, Don Cherry & Naná Vasconcelos make magical world music together, it's a shame that Wolcott and Cherry are no longer with us, I'd love to hear them live. They were among the early musicians to break down barriers between jazz and other forms of music. They loved open space in their music, but they could really get a rhythm rolling and rocking, too. The blend of trumpet, sitar, gongs, gourds and drums sounds sublime on any sound system, but if you have a really good one (or high-end headphones), you're in for a real aural treat. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy this for "Malinye" if nothing else July 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I heard "Malinye" as the opening and closing piece of music for the long-forgotten 1984 PBS documentary, "America and Lewis Hine", about the photographer who documented abuses of child labor and labor in general in the early part of the 20th century, and who, a bit later in life, was the official photographer for the construction of the Empire State Building. I was immediately struck by the unusual instrumentation - accordion, tympani, tambourine, trumpet.

I had rented this documentary on VHS from a great off-the-wall rental store, Premiere Video, when I was living in Dallas a few years ago, and remember being struck by this music. I now have Dish Network, which provides the Documentary Channel on its basic package. They recently aired this documentary and I was reminded of "Malinye". So this may be the weakest of the "Cadona" releases in some opinions, but all I know is that it is the one that contains this strange piece of music known as "Malinye".

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best CODONA October 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Hi. If you want to know about the gorgeous, multicultural, complex, and unique music that sitarist Walcott, Brazillian percussionist Vasconcelos, and pocket trumpet/ doussn'gouni legend Don Cherry get up to on these releases, read my review of CODONA 3, and then BUY THAT DISC. If you love it, buy the first one. If you still need more, buy this one, and you will be glad. Don't start here, though. For no reasons I can give, I always considered this the weakest of the 3 CDs. Been awhile since I heard it, though, but I'd even rank Walcott's GRAZING DREAMS above it, tho' it lacks Vasconcelos. Entirely a subjective thing, but, well, there it is.
