Masada isn't really free jazz, more along the lines of traditional Jewish music than anything else. If you're really into free jazz, check out its pioneers: Sun Ra, Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, etc. It's disputable of course but I believe Coleman's The Shape of Jazz to Come is the definitive free jazz album.

And I think there's already a thread on this.
