Allright. Guess this is not the very right place to ask for such stuff, but I think here are people who are into this kind of stuff.
If You can recommend me anything from the abovementioned genres would be cool. Great clean sound, good recording is mandatory.
Thanx!

Currently listening to Dizzie Gillespies' 70- The real thing. And it's great.

Get stuck into a label called ECM. It specializes in fusion and more experimental jazz. Here's a great track from an early Pat Metheny album with Jaco on bass:

Other artists and albums on the label I can recommend are Ralph Towner (Solstice), Eberhard Weber (Yellow Fields and Pendulum), Stephan Micus (East of the Night) and David Torn (Cloud About Mercury, featuring 2 of the 80s King Crimson lineup)

I'll be posting some pussy shit nonwave will hate if he still reads the board. Lots of other threads on this stuff too so do a search Very Happy

Free jazz, top picks:

Cecil Taylor - Nefertiti, Unit Structures, Conquistador!

John Coltrane - Interstellar Space, Ascension (CD has both versions), Live In Japan 4xCD, Live At The Village Vanguard Again!, Live In Seattle 2xCD, The Olatunji Concert

Roscoe Mitchell - Sound (!!!!), Old/Quartet Sessions, Congliptious and Composition/Improvisation 1, 2, 3 (this ECM gem has my HIGHEST FUCKING PRAISE)

Anthony Braxton - For Alto, Donna Lee, Saxophone Improvisations Series F (although he has like 50 other killer records out there)

Peter Botzmann - Balls, For Adophe Sax, MACHINE GUN, Nipples

Evan Parker, Derek Bailey, Han Bennink - Topography of the Lungs

Albert Ayler - Live In Greenwich Village, Prophecy, Holy Ghost 10 CD box set, At Slugs Saloon, The Hilversum Sessions. His studio free albums are wild too but not like his live records. Check Spiritual Unity it rules.

16-17 - S/T + When All Else Fails

Bill Orcutt & Chris Corsano - The Raw The Cooked (incredible!!!!)

Burning Tree - Lammergyer fucking nuts free blowing skronk out on Utech

Dead Neanderthals - Polaris (same as above)



Fusion (including funky fusion and jazz with world influences):

Alice Coltrane - not really fusion, not really anything really but everything she has done is incredible. Especially Universal Consciousness and World Galaxy!

Don Cherry - Mu 1 & 2, Orient (!!!!!!!), Blue Lake, Brown Rice, Organic Music Society

(obviously) Miles Davis fusion era. Bitches Brew, In A Silent Way, On The Corner, Big Fun, Get Up With It are my top 5.

Carlos Santana & John McLaughlin - Love Devotion Surrender. Weird freaky tribute to Coltrane. Unreal. Highest possible praise.

Herbie Hancock - Man-Child (his best in my opinion), Sextant, Thrust, Crossings, Headhunters - best albums of his electronic era.

Return To Forever - Hymns to the Seventh Galaxy (this album rules so hard)

The New Tony Williams Lifetime - Believe It (unreal fucked up robot fusion with Allan Holdsworth on guitar), totally under appreciated album in my opinion. Classic weird shit.



Avant Garde, or hard to classify:

Terje Rypdal - Odyssey (2xLP of weird electric guitar fusion. Bizarre and awesome)

Sam Rivers - Crystals

Bill Dixon - November 1981

Gotta throw a second for MACHINE GUN. The gal took me to see him for a 30th birthday present a couple of years back. Had my damn mind fried open and apart. Brotzmann is a fucking animal. More hate & conviction then I see in most modern BM.

This is a must listen. PLAY LOUD - - -

Ornette Coleman - Free Jazz

I second Brotzman as well, Machine Gun is a masterpiece.

Free Jazz is great, so are the Golden Circle albums, Ornette on Tenor and Ornette!! Free Jazz is pretty cool and I'm sure pretty revolutionary at the time, but not that incredible....

Looking at Discogs I'm glad I picked up those Brotzmann CDs when they were in print. I see The Complete Machine Gun Sessions sold for $80 US Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

James Chance & the Contortions. More punk/funk than jazz but attitude out the ass.
