Orient is a live album by jazz/world music musician Don Cherry recorded in 1971 and released on the BYG label in Japan in 1974, originally untitled. When reissued in the UK by Affinity Records in 1980, it was issued with the title "Orient." Later reissues have continued to use the same title.[1]

Reception[edit]

In his review for Allmusic, Brian Olewnick says, "While not quite up to the caliber of Eternal Rhythm or the Mu sessions with Ed Blackwell, Orient is nonetheless a valuable document and recommended".[2]
