    Default Paging Gidrah

    Yeah, I need to learn more about both myself. Maybe someday I'll get one or the other nailed down.

    Do you get into any other "out/free" jazz? I discovered Cecil Taylor this summer, and love his work. I also just picked up stuff by SpaceWays, Inc.; Willem Breuker Kollektief; and the latest Billy Bang "Vietnam: The Aftermath".

    Unfortunately, no. Sun Ra is about the extent of my experience. I've only been into Jazz for a couple of years. Bitches Brew is my current favorite. It'll probably be my favorite for a long time. I've been listening to some techno/electronica lately courtesy of public radio. It's all Jazz to me.
    Make it Funky! :)

    "Bitches Brew" is great stuff.

    Right now, I'm upstairs in my study; Cassandra Wilson is playing downstairs on the big system, her voice floats up now and then. IMO, she's one of the best of the younger jazz divas - I think she outshines Diana Krall, Norah Jones, and Jane Monheit by far.

    Patricia Barber has her moments, but is a bit soul-less.

    Madeleine Peyroux is good - but she only did 1 release back in '96.
