Jazz: free improvisation, free form, freak out

Hello and welcome to another two hours of psychedelic music from around the world, right here on Global Psychedelia.  I’m your host, The New Elastic Infinite, and today’s playlist (and accompanying show) is Jazz that will blow your funky mind! I love Jazz.  All kinds of Jazz.  But I really love free improvisation and free Jazz the likes of Kaoru Abe, Henry Kaiser, Sun Ra, Peter Brötzmann, Ornette Coleman, Peeter Uuskyla, Cecil Taylor, John Zorn, the Jooklo ensembles, Keiji Haino, Noah Howard, Archie Shepp, Albert Ayler, Derek Bailey, Wadada Leo Smith, Bill Laswell, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Roland Kirk, Toshinori Kondo, Revolutionary Ensemble, Don Cherry, and so many others.  Today’s list will include an hour of some of the above mentioned artists and my special guest, the shell-shocked watermelon, will add an hour of his picks to that, so stay tuned for two hours that will make your heart race, your ears buzz with ecstatic vibrations, and your mind journey on the interstellar pathways and the darkness under fast-ice arctic waters.  Turn this one way up, scream, moan, shake, MOVE! Turn on and tune in to WEFT 90.1 FM and listen live at weft.org every Saturday from 2-4 PM CST.
