Cherry Jam was taken from a 1965 pre-record for Danish national radio, and features three of Cherry’s original composition, plus a cover of Richard Rodgers’ 1928 tune ‘You Took Advantage of Me’.
The EP features Cherry on cornet, Mogens Bollerup on tenor saxophone, Atli Bjørn on piano, Benny Nielsen on double bass, and Simon Koppel on drums.
Cherry Jam was previously only available as a Record Store Day exclusive; its new edition features Japanese liner notes.
