Codona was a free jazz and world fusion group which released three self-titled albums on the ECM label in 1978, 1980 and 1982. The trio consisted of Don Cherry, Collin Walcott, and Nana Vasconcelos.

The name of the group is derived from the first two letters of each of the member's first names.

Thanks for this. It is a pity that the physical format is not as affordable as this...

Amazing music anyway.
