alright first things first. NOTHING about this thread has anything to do with big band jazz. any purist would flip out.

IS - if you're digging on zappa's grand wazoo you might also dig on some john zorn stuff. possibly the residents as well. probably want to check out sun ra first of all though.

PM - as for the darker moodier stuff take a look at charles mingus' 'the black saint and the sinner lady' if your not already familiar with it. you might also dig early jaga jazzist their first 2 releases especially.
