Frogman, as much as I like Don Cherry and Gato, you can have that one. I either have that or something similar, that stays in the CD player just long enough for me to sit down, listen a little, then get up and take it back out.

**** If jazz is moving so freely forward, why are you submitting so much jazz from the past? Why aren’t you submitting jazz from 2010 at least ****
O-10, because you brought up the subject of “free jazz” and, based on your post it seemed to me that you were connecting all post-bop jazz with free jazz. Two totally different genres. “Modern Jazz” has moved well beyond hard-bop while having nothing to do with free jazz. Moreover, there has been a tremendous amount of post-2010 Jazz posted by myself and others and two (“so much”?) examples of interesting, or at least significant, “free jazz” seemed like an appropriate contribution given your reference to it. Lastly, the obvious: 2010 to the present is a mere ten years; jazz, as you know, has been with us for a century. Many more examples, no? This subject has been beaten to death here, IMO, and there is a tendency to go around in circles with these general sub-topics. Bottom line, and as has been written many times:
”there’s the good kind and the other kind”, and we can find examples of both from any time period including the present.
Regards, and I hope that answered your question.
Questions to The Frogman:
A person sits in front of a stereo system and listens to a tune he has never heard before. He does not know the group playing. He has no prior knowledge of any aspect of the music he is about to hear.
Can a person tell just from how the music starts and what and how it's played at the beginning, whether or not there will be a vocal component to the tune.
The most hated / feared group on Aficionados. Also maybe the best. Duke Ellington said they were 'beyond category'.
From a few days ago, this is the real best version.
