View Full Version : Music Free Jazz

Is anybody else here into free jazz?

I've really gotten into it hardcore, specifically the jazz pioneers from the 1960s but I'd love to get into more modern free jazz artists.

The only modern free jazz ensemble I've gotten into is Joe Maneri, who I just think is fantastic. Maneri's music, in particular In Full Cry, which is the album of his that I own, is structured as if a mainstream jazz tune was intended, but the band just completely misses all the notes and it creates a whole new dynamic altogether. Just great stuff.

Wondering what you're into. I'm comfortable discussing the other free jazz I own if anybody's interested.

i really like ornette coleman, either of his Live at the Golden Circle releases are amazing.

you also can't go wrong with any post 1964 Coltrane, Albert Ayler is also good.

Its a lot better than the kind you have to pay for, thats for sure.

In all seriousness though, check out "aka moon".

i like jazz it is alittle boring at times, but the drummers have some patience for sure

Other than Coltrane, I'm not a big fan. I'm more into traditional bebop and cool jazz, although modern big band is what I really go for.

'free' jazz? never heard of it. now, are you referring to 'fusion' jazz? that's kinda free. and I'm too lazy to use the google machine. epic fail on my part, I guess.

I love Jazz... but take it back to the 30's & 40's.
