~~Born in New Haven,Connecticut, Ed moved to New York in 1978 to play guitar with Dizzy Gillespie from 1978 to 1992 performing in Gillespie's quartet, big band and with The United Nation Orchestra which recorded the Grammy Award-winning Live at Royal Festival Hall (Enja).
This always-in-demand guitarist has recorded or performed with Paquito d'Rivera, toured with Roy Hargrove's "Crisol" Latin jazz band, and with Hammond B3 greats Dr. Dr. Lonnie Smith, Jimmy Smith and John Patton, to name a few.
Cherry has recorded several albums with his own groups and continues to travel the world playing with his own groups and as a valued sideman in many other jazz bands.
"An expressive instrumentalist, Cherry has a hip, melodic approach that is a refreshing contrast to guitarists who frequently resort to playing 'finger music', the execution of rapid streams of notes that serve no musical purpose other than to fill space"- Jim Ferguson: Jazztimes
