Make A Jazz Noise Here
Back again, I loved Coltrane's Ascension and Sun Ra's Featuring Pharoah Sanders & Black Harold, those, I believe are "good" free jazz albums. You seem to be well educated in the free jazz world, what else can I listen to, I have all kinds of the "traditional" already, and I'm all for the free stuff.

Ascension is definitely an amazing album. A lot of the jazz I listen to is avant garde/free jazz rather then the more “traditional” stuff, although I do have a deep love for it all. Sorry it took me so long to respond to this, I have another blog that I’m always on, and I went through my collection of music to make you a list:

Naked City - Torture Garden
Otomo Yoshihide’s New Jazz Quintet  - ONJQ - Live in Lisbon
Painkiller - Guts of a Virgin
Ornette Coleman - The Shape of Jazz to Come
Marion Brown Quartet - s/t
Peter Brotzmann - Machine Gun
Albert Ayler - Live in Greenwich Village: The Complete Impulse Recordings
Alexander Von Schlippenbach - Pakistani Pomade
Charles Gayle - Repent
Matana Roberts - Coin Coin Chapter One: Gens De Couleur Libres 

Let me know if and when you need more, I have a lot of great stuff. 

I like jazz, mostly Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and Sun Ra. Shvat else is good? I do happen to enjoy a lot more jazz, that's just the jist, ya know? However, I love your blog. Great Idea.

Hello,

I’m glad you enjoy my blog. It was originally meant to be personal more or less, but followers are welcome. I’d recommend listening to everything I post. A lot of it consists of free jazz like John Zorn, and his many side projects, Otomo Yoshihide, Matana Roberts, Ornette Coleman etc. As for more “traditional” jazz, I’d recommend Wayne Cadaverous, Louis Armstrong, Pharoah Sanders, Alice Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Marion Brown. You can also check out fuckyeahjazzmusic, they have a large variety of great jazz. Hope this helps!
