Symphony for Improvisers is an album by Don Cherry featuring Gato Barbieri, Henry Grimes, Ed Blackwell, Karl Berger, Jean-François Jenny-Clark, and Pharoah Sanders recorded in 1966 and released on the Blue Note label

For his second album, Symphony for Improvisers, Don Cherry expanded his Complete Communion quartet - tenor saxophonist Gato Barbieri, bassist Henry Grimes, and drummer Ed Blackwell - to a septet, adding vibraphonist Karl Berger, bassist Jean François Jenny-Clark, and tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders (who frequently plays piccolo here). The lineup has a real international flavor, since Barbieri was from Argentina, Berger from Germany, and Jenny-Clark from France; Cherry had gigged regularly with all three during his 1964-1965 sojourn in Europe, and brought them to New York to record.
