Okay - your blog is very good. How come I didn't know about this?
Not a huge fan, but I like some of it. I usually listen to jazz when I'm relaxed or trying to relax and when the music gets too chaotic I would rather listen to some metal. It's raging but it's still orderly.
JL mentioned Yusef Lateef. His Live at Pep's album is the bomb. I would put him in the same category as Eric Dolphy and Joe Henderson. The music may sometimes be harmonically "outside" (people play a bunch of notes out of the key signature) but the structure is still mellow. The Sun Ra and Cecil Taylor stuff is wild.
Have you ever heard John Zorn's Spy vs. Spy? The contractors should have had that one at Gitmo.
Archie Shepp's Fire Music is a good one too.
M83!!!! his older stuff is really amazing
