Free Jazz Project

I'm currently working on a project to send back home to John & the rest of the 'Friends of Jazz' gang - a jazz appreciation group on the Kapiti Coast.

The plan is to write a series of emails under the subject heading "Free Jazz: An Introduction" with the hopes to open the ears to some new sounds.
Making brief notes on key artists and recordings is leading to an ever expanding list as I think of things along the way.

Lots and lots of listening to get to in the coming weeks. Lately there's been plenty of Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor, and Sam Rivers resonating throughout the apartment.

Tonight I'm off to hear Ken Vandermark's "The Midwest School" at the Green Mill.
