Along with Count Basie and Louis Armstrong collections, that was the album that got me into jazz in the first place. Then it was A Tribute To Jack Johnson.

I really enjoyed them. Thanks for the tip.

Quite welcome.

What albums or songs did you listen to?

Those are all great albums, but Jumping Off Points isn't an album. I meant to say AS jumping off points. As in, Corea, Hancock, and Evans are good AS jumping off points. Sorry!

And by the way, I think Thrust is my favorite album from Hancock.

I always find myself falling back on my two favourite jazz artists: Ken Vandermark and Albert Ayler.

Right now I've got Vandermark's There Is No Reason playing (can't find it on YouTube, sorry). I'm going to put on Ayler's Saints off of the Holy Ghost boxset soon, so that'll be ten minutes of free jazz fun.

Here's a six minute version off of Witches and Devils:

I have nothing to add to this thread, but I think that instead of "Jazz Extravaganza" the thread should say, "Jazztravaganza". That is all.

I've been thinking that very same thing. Fixed.

I haven't been listening to too much jazz lately, but a buddy gave me Chris Potter's Live At The Village Vanguard, and just from hearing the first two songs, I can tell it's going to be a winner.



I listening to BBNG the other night. Forgot how good it is, what with how fantastic BBNG2 is. What's interesting about the album is that the jazziest song on it is a Legend Of Zelda medley, of all things.

Arise, thread, arise!

Got an awesome free jazz comp today for cheap. Double LP, comes with a booklet on the history of the free jazz movement. It mixes in audio clips from the civil rights movement into and in between tracks. The songs are mixed in such a way that they flow seamlessly into one another. It's truly epic.

Here's what I'm listening to now!



This **** would scare some kvlt metalheads.
