Greetings
 
Hello Everyone!

I thought I might introduce myself before I 'Jump in the Fire'. I go by the name of Freejazz (duh! :) ), I am from Hungary and I'm 26.

I love all kinds of music and I thought maybe I will have some good discussion about it, maybe here I can indulge my eclecticism. From Zappa to Zorn and back.

As m handle indicates, I am especially interested in free jazz, free improvisation and the avant-garde.

Have a nice day/night! :)

Zorn? Does that mean you're into Naked City?

Oh yes, I am. And Moonchild and his Masada stuff and his exotica too. Love the guy.

Oh and thanks for posting. :)

My knowledge of avant garde stuff is unfortunately kind of shallow, but it's just nice to know you're not scared of more abrasive music.

Welcome friend, good to see another diehard avant-gardist on the boards. What free jazz artists do you like?

I think one can always listen and learn. I have to admit I have to be in the right mindframe to listen to something more abrasive of forceful but yeah, I like it.

Thank you! I don't know if I'm a die-hard but I'm pretty much interested. My conversion to the more convoluted side of music started with Frank Zappa and from then on I branched out.

On the free jazz side I'm pretty much into Ken Vandermark, Mats Gustafsson and their collaborators. :) I love Peter Brötzmann, Wadada Leo Smith, William Parker, so much wonderful music from these daring spirits.

I have a pretty historical - (borderline insane :D) completist nature (Just a typical Zappa nut thing, I guess), so I pretty much look back in time to Coltrane, Albert Ayler and other departed giants.

Maybe my biggest overall jazzoid love is Miles Davis, especially his freaky 70-75 period. So inspiring!

I would be glad if you could tell me your favourites, Frownland (the name is from Captain Beefheart, right?) Just to survey if I can maybe help or suggest something or just delight in some shared love.

Those are all great artists, Brötzmann and Ayler are my favourites. Have you heard The Thing? It's got Gustafsson in it and it's pretty fantastic. Other free jazz artists I like are Anthony Braxton, Dave Burrell, Cecil Taylor, Paal Nilssen-Love, Matana Roberts, Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, Keiji Haino (not so much free jazz as free improvisation), and Han Bennink.

I am a big proponent of pretty much everything Mats Gus, so I know The Thing. But thank you for the suggestion!

Of those artist you mentioned, I pretty much acquainted with everyone. I haven't got around to really listen to Miss Matana Roberts and so far I only read of Dave Burrell. Really nice to share the affection.

Anthony Braxton is so great, I am one of those twisted souls who finds him playful :)
