If the Jazz ain't Free it's not for me

best genre when it's 3 in the morning and you're looking to commune with God. Favourite cuts, 'free'ly ranked if you will (please don't feel you have to)
1Manuel Mota
For Your Protection Why Don't You Just Paint Yours


the guitar tone is :O :O :O :O :O
2John Coltrane
Meditations


the essential
3Albert Ayler
Live in Greenwich Village


proof positive of the violin's atonal versatility. i've melted to this.
4John Coltrane
The Olatunji Concert: The Last Live Recording


when the euphoric noise breaches the threshold and everything unfurls and uncurls before your very eyes B}
5The Jazz Composer's Orchestra
The Jazz Composer's Orchestra


Ironically, very little of this was composed! Very clever team!
6London Jazz Composer's Orchestra
Ode


Like the above with a delightfully sardonic British twist
7Ornette Coleman
Free Jazz: A Collective Improvisation


Read this obituary I wrote about Coleman and i'll kiss ur beautiful forehead http://pantograph-punch.com/post/beauty-is-a-rare-thing
8Kaoru Abe
Mort à crédit


The only thing Abe couldn't free himself from was a heroin addiction: gone way too soon, but what he's left us with will be parsed for eons. A legend.
9Cecil Taylor
One Too Many Salty Swift And Not Goodbye


Par Excellence, albeit a little bloated: a steroidical beast.
10 Masayuki Takayanagi
complete "la grima"


Unfortunately this did not end up being a "New Direction" as promised... this punter wants his money back!!!
11Peter Brotzmann
Machine Gun


won't SOMEONE put that pig out of it's misery
12Anthony Braxton
For Alto


Emo Free Jazz
13Masayuki Takayanagi
April Is The Cruellest Month


true
14Noah Howard
The Black Ark


Pretty straight-forward, piquant, lilting, lovely
15Manfred Schoof
European Echoes


If Coltrane introduces you to God this pushes you down a flight of escalators with the Devil waiting at the bottom. Turns out he's completely misunderstood.
16Lawrence Butch Morris
Testament: A Conduction Collection


i LOVE this, should be higher but i don't have the time to tease out all the brilliance on display
17Schlippenbach Trio
Swinging the Bim


Great unfathomable album title with unfathomable music to match.
18Sonny Sharrock
Black Woman


She's a beaut this'un: tender and evocative guitar playing. Mixing is pretty poor tho :(.
19 Anthony Braxton
Time Zones


Shh. Gentle.
20Don Cherry
"mu" First Part


not to be confused with the terrible board on the trash site
