I like their normal sounding songs like "Hazy Paradise" and "Piper" off of Hypnotic Underworld better than the avant garde stuff. I love the soloing on "Hazy Paradise".

About free jazz...

I think I appreciate "free-jazz" better when it's just a section or aspect of a song...not the whole song itself. So I'm talking mostly general influence on the music...or a solo/bridge "freakout" section at most. If it's anything more...I reealllllly have to be in a specific mood to enjoy it.

I've been rocking out to "Out to Lunch" by Eric Dolphy, not sure if you'd consider it "free jazz" but from what I've read it was all improvised and recorded..

This is what you should buy first. It's like a gateway drug into the world of free/avant-garde jazz. It's an absolute masterpiece and one of the greatest accomplishments of any jazz artist.

And of course, for more general jazz recommendations, see the pinned Jazz Appreciation thread at the top of the page.

There's only flute on Gazzelloni right?

Out There and Last Date have more. He rocks the flute like no other.

Byard Lancaster is the only other cat with flute chops like him.

No free jazz discussion is complete without mention of Don Cherry.

I was thinking about mentioning Cherry as a collaborator of Ornette Coleman, but I haven't heard any of his stuff as a leader.

hmm... I like.

The No-Neck Blues Band
Sun burned Hand of the Man
Taj Mahal Travelers
Shalabi Effect (one of my favorite bands)
Shakti (I think they are improv)

These are more free-jam type bands, not so much jazz as what is listed above by other people.

but i think they are good.
