    Here's another Texier track, with Glenn Ferris again, plus multi instrumentalist Leo Sclavis plus a favourite pianist of mine Boran Zulfikarpasic

    Recorded in 1997, published seven years later.

    (some of you might want to skip the first two and a half minutes of the track...)

    Thanks Mat and stu,
    This is music I can certainly listen to and appreciate.
    I think I am starting to get an idea of what is developing, though I would like to hear some modern
    stuff from the States; (perhaps you can help me here Steve?)

    Mat, sounds like he is maybe strumming the keybord strings on the opening minutes of the track?. I think.

    Stu, he is known for often playing his tunes on a prepared piano, so strumming might very well be what he was doing at the beginning of this track.

    If I could just add a little to the thread, John the clip: 'Lekverk 21st' cent was not too bad to my ears but how about so called free form Jazz?? here is Jazzlab.
    If you notice in the personnel listing they include a 'composer' now I am not sure in what capacity he serves the group but what do you make of the music

    Hi Colin,
    I found that incedibly awful.
    If thats what is coming I am glad I wont have too much longer to suffer it.
    I'm heading back to the pre-1960s

    You have to have the stamina to see it out to the endthat was part 1 there is believe it or not part 2 and 3???.

    THIS is worse. And don't say I didn't warn you!

    As tempting as it is, I will not comment on their band name. Or... No, I won't.

    Jeeez Mat it's getting really cool just where is music heading?

    Free jazz gig on Jazz Festival in Thessaloniki September 2008
    I copied this link from another forum.




    This is known as Free Jazz. I just don't get it.To me it is a shambles. I think a lot of to days music Classical and Jazz has lost its way, For me I insist on a good rhythmic beat and a structured form I.e. chord sequence, and a recognisable melody is for me essential.

    Colin, I couldn't agree more. Here's a post of mine from one of Mike's threads, in which he posted something similar these vids above.

    So do I.

    I think we might have highjacked John's thread a little. Let's get back to more... conventional jazz, shall we?

    Here's a song from a 2003 album recorded by Michael Bublé:

    In my lifetime Jazz was at it's best in the 50 and early 60's but I am biased lol, some of the groups lasted through the 80's I think

    Thanks Mat and Colin for managing to convince me to stick to my own preferred pre-60s jazz
    (and post 60s equivalents.)
    Perhaps the thread should be re-named "Nightmare Jazz" and be forgotten about.

    I think it was clarinettist Kenny Davern who once quipped, after hearing some extreme 'free jazz'--"sounds like a fire in a pet shop!"
