    I enjoy some aspects of Free Jazz but for the most part it only makes me tense. Coltrane and some of the heavy weight guys back in the fiftys, and eary sixties could go totally insane, and almost drive you insane after a few hours. Free Jazz to me is the real jazz. Meaning it's almost all improvisation, based around some core or key. It's a cool Daddy O.

    If it is based around a key, it can't be that free - surely they could make it a lot freer if they removed the last shackle of those repressive classicists....

    Cecil Taylor, some Steve Lacy...yeah they still had a key to work with.
