    I do not believe something like this exists, did several searches. If so please advise. Not sure how much of an audience there is for this but.......

    I've thoroughly enjoyed reading and posting at the Jazz Beat and Prog playlist threads. It's great to not only connect with those with similar musical tastes but it's also educational, alerting you to something you were unaware of or reminding you of something in your collection that you have not listened to lately.

    Sometimes though, you've got something on that just may not fit the bill, where the question of genre even escapes you: "Yeah, I guess that's not jazz", or maybe it's some far out rock that escapes definition.

    So I'm hoping this to be a good parking space for playlists and comments for those avant, new music, contemporary classical, free improv artists or releases that don't fit into the other "spaces".

    I'll get started with this, an Evan Parker project on ECM.

    Ah, so you have a new place to hang your hat :tiphat::laugh:.

    Think this can be a pretty useful and interesting thread (that's why I didn't think of it:oops:). Anyway, I am a little stubborn about classifying such folks as Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, John Stevens, et al as not being jazz artists. So I might have to split some hairs on occasions. But a good place to post a lot of my listening, Thanks.

    I don't know if it counts too much a jazz to fit the bill, but for the last couple of evenings I've been making my way through Aum Fidelity's great new 8-CD box set of William Parker live recordings from 2006-2012, Wood Flute Songs, which was released late last year. Just a treasure trove of great performances, especially from the awesome Rob Brown on alto, but that whole core quartet is just playing on an incredible level of communication.

    We've got MANY hats to hang:cool: I figure "splitting hairs" is part of the fun, besides, Martin Davidson has "File Under New Music/Free Jazz" on his releases.

    This is great stuff. It's out of stock at Amazon and I keep wanting to order directly from AUM but my Pay pal account is drained. :( It shall be on my shelves very soon.

    Was playing this a little while ago. I'll post it here (even though it could maybe go in the jazz thread):

    I think zphage has started a similar thread or two himself. I can never decide what to add to these, though.

    but here's something. Tae-Hwan Kang is a saxophonist from south korea for whom I have an enormous amount of respect and whose work means a great deal to me. I'm not sure I can say much more in words. he leaves me transfixed every time.

    here he is performing a few months ago in seoul. youtube should suggest part 2 to you after part 1 finishes:


    Kang Tae-Hwan: improvisation 7/14/13, seoul, south korea (part 1)

    Is a dual post verboten?

    Amazing stuff, Parker's multiphonics with his own ethnic sensibilities and a great presentation aesthetic.

    Probably "just not done" and also I'm too lazy for that :cool:

    I'm currently listening to this CD. Its a totally confusing mix of jazz and world music from so many perspectives (mostly of the eastern-something variety) it is pretty much beyond classification (except maybe improv world music)? Talented bunch of musicians! Cheers!

    Very cool. John Zorn's Masada material has a similar melding of jazz and middle eastern influences.

    These guys aren't technically jazz, but you can really feel the jazz influences in their music. They're quite good, but not too well known.
