I'm rediscovering Billy Bang whom I haven't listened to in about ten years.
Too bad because he has some amazing albums.

Currently listening to:
Billy Bang Quintet Featuring Frank Lowe ‎– Above & Beyond: An Evening In Grand Rapids

https://open.spotify.com/album/5vkDqYF9IM3fg6CmWgRqD0

It's far from smooth jazz but this should be very listenable even for people who aren't into avantgarde jazz.
Not to say that there aren't some delicous dissonant flourishes here and there keeping it interesting.
This album is also a farewell to the great sax player Frank Lowe who died from lung cancer not long after this concert.
He sounds great here and you'd never guess that this is the playing of a dying man with just one lung left.
Recommended for pretty much everybody here who likes jazz.

I'll put that on my listening list! Right now I'm playing this, which is one of my favourite jazz albums I've heard so far:
Alice Coltrane - Journey In Satchidananda

The Complete Ella Fitzgerald Songbooks (Verve, 1994)

Spent all morning with this wonderful box set. Moving on but wanted to give a plug. Must have, imo.

He was also a radical af black revolutionary. He was in the American War of Aggression against the Vietnamese when he found Marxist literature that stated “Black GI This is not you war Go Home” and when he finally did get back to the so called United States he read Mao’s Red Book and then used his military training to pick out and purchase guns (mostly pistols) for underground black revolutionary marxists but he did not identify which specific organization by name in any interviews.

His Vietnam themed albums (Vietnam: The Aftermath and Vietnam: Reflections) are also highly recommended listening.

When Sun Ra is your sideman it’s pretty clear you’re a badass. I can’t wait to listen to this but I’m going to spend the rest of the day with with Sonny Rollins.

Never heard that one.
Interesting. Sun Ra as a sideman is rare af.
The only other album that comes to my mind atm where this is the case is Walt Dickerson's Impressions Of A Patch Of Blue.

I listened to John Coltrane's Ascension today; now and then I was struck by the beauty but mostly I just felt overwhelmed. Big ensemble free jazz à la Coltrane is truly something else.

I enjoyed grindy's Billy Bang rec, especially the deeply soothing quiet part near the end of the third track, and the delightful violin outburst at the end of the record
