    Modern Jazz Quintet Karlsruhe / Four Men Only - Complete Recordings (NoBusiness)


    Herbert Joos (flugelhorn, mellophone, piston, percussion), Wilfried Eichhorn (tenor & soprano saxophone, flute), Helmuth Zimmer (piano), Klaus Bühler (double bass), Rudi Theilmann (drums)

    This is a reissue of Trees, Position 2000, Four Men Only Volume One and Eight Science Fiction Stories, with some previously unreleased tracks, recorded 1968-1973. I didn't know anything about the musicians. Very good organic group interplay. NoBusiness has been releasing many high-quality, memorable free jazz albums.

    Sam Rivers - Paragon

    I've always loved this album. Rivers switches off between sax and flute and he's a master at both. Dave Holland also tears stuff up here on bass. The second track is a really nice calm section between flute and an arco bass with some really wonderful harmonies, and the rest of the album thrashes wildly.

    Gary Peacock Tribute - The Free Jazz Collective's reviews of recordings by Gary Peacock. I listened to this Davidson trio album I didn't know, and I liked the trio's introspective and delicate free interplay very much.

    I got REALLY into Interstellar Space by Coltrane lately. And I once hated that album. See how things are.

    I take it you mean stuff like Cecil Taylor and his ilk.

    These guys were "second wave" outcats, who often played together at Studio We, one of the earlier venues on the '70s "loft jazz" scene in lower Manhattan:

    I just bought a copy of Dortmund 1976 by Anthony Braxton. What a concert! Dave Holland, Barry Altschul, and George Lewis make up the quartet.

    While I do like quite a bit of outside jazz, I am not completely sold on free jazz. I like a bit of structure.

    I am good with jazz, that starts off with a some structure, then goes into a free sections, then comes back to structure. I guess some of the 'spiritual jazz' might fit that description.

    Also, I wish I could get over the feeling, that some free jazz players, gravitated toward the free jazz blowing in order to cover up their lack of serious chops. Anthony Braxton, in his pre free jazz days, was not the best player.

    But sometimes, I do get into certain moods, where nothing else will will fit.

    Poland in the late 60's and 70's seems to have found some compatibility with the free jazz movement.

    Thomas Stanko was one of the standouts.
