    - Jaimie Branch.
    - Fire! Orchestra.
    - Tomeka Reid and
    - David Torn, Tim Berne & Ches Smith.

    2019: a good year IMO!.

    Fire! & Tomeka Reid are free jazz? I guess I like free jazz!

    I blame Wynton, what was the question?

    Anna Webber definitely isn't free jazz, so I assume this is just a best of jazz in 2019 list not specifically tailored to freejazz.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Four tracks on this archival live Coltrane from 1962.First three tunes are "standards",OK but not much more, IMO.The one original tune here "Impressions" makes this worth buying.20 minutes of mostly fabulous music from the classic quartet.

    Here's an article and interview on Angel Bat Dawid who had an album out last year called The Oracle. I wondered who she was last night as I listened to her album. Very interesting that she recorded or used an app on her cell phone in recording the album. There's a sound sample over there too.

    It ain't over until the fat lady sings!!

    All kidding aside, it's interesting enough (I'll check out more) , but in the view of that video, they're kind of overdoing it in terms of specific instrumentation


    Mmmhhh!!!.... International Anthem is quickly becoming THE over-hyped hipster label, and I'm not "getting it"

    Whether Jeff Parker, this or others on that roster.

    Maybe Resavoir, but that's the only one that moved my left nut, but didn't manage to repeat it with the right one.
    my music collection increased tenfolds when I switched from drug-addicts to complete nutcases.

    Gang,
    Been digging:

    - Musica Infinita by Tino Contreras.
    (I have it in an old cassette somewhere!)


    "A psychedelic, experimental jazz record, originally released in 1978."

    "Explaining his connection to the record, Peterson says, "This was the first record I heard from that region which had that amazing psychedelic, cosmic jazz sound. It's somewhere between a David Axelrod record and a release on Saturn. I've always had it as one of my secret gems."

    More:
    https://arc-records.bandcamp.com/album/musica-infinita
    (released January 10, 2020)


    - Chris Lightcap.
    (Bassist and composer.)

    Chris Lightcap's Superette recording "Djali" with guest Nels Cline: (Lightcap's album "Superette," dropping September 2018)


    - SuperBigmouth by Chris Lightcap.
    (released October 4, 2019)


    “Two guitars, two drum kits, two tenor saxophones, bass, keyboards and a whole lot of reverb."

    More:
    https://chrislightcappyroclastic.ban.../superbigmouth

    - Great musics & videos IMO!: -
    https://www.chrislightcap.com/video


    - downundaground by Various Artists.
    (released December 13, 2019)

    "A compilation comprised of young up-and-coming Australian Instrumentalists and Improvisers rooted in jazz, drawing from the 70s' deep spirituality and high grooves of Miles & Herbie to the modern street sounds of Dego & Kaidi."
