What are the most intense jazz albums? Also, what are some jazz albums with stero experimentation? Are there any jazz albums that mix in musique concrete? What's your personal favorite jazz album?

>most intense
Probably Machine Gun for something good or some retarded Japanese shit for overall.

>stero [sic] experimentation
Bitches Brew (beginning of the title track)

>jazz w/musique concrete
Gil Melle - Tome VI was the first to do it in 1968. Incorporating tape manipulations and other electroacoustic elements is a pretty popular in a lot of the more free-improv leaning jazz groups/musicians. Look for stuff by Evan Parker and Barry Guy. Some of Herbie Hancock's stuff incorporates this too if you want something more accessible.

>favorite album
Tim Berne - The Shell Game

Ground Zero - Revolutionary Pekinese Opera Ver 1.28

Giant Steps especially Countdown, it has studio experimentation that you're looking for. The Magic Of Ju-Ju, title track kicks you right in the fucking balls and it's the intro. All of Lounge Lizards albums are intense, and Jaco's Twins Live In Japan are amazing, a quarter of the songs got deleted on Spotify though, the performance of Invitation is insane.

I forgot Yosuke Yamashita's Spider is intense, Return To Forever's Romantic Warrior, and Hadrien FĂ©raud's self title is really really high octane, there's a unique performance of Giant Steps on it too that I know you will like.

OP this is your best answer

Definitely check out Last Exit which I think someone mentioned earlier in the thread
>>
>>87176957
Miles Davis - Black Beauty
Miles Davis - Live At The Fillmore East (this is probably what you're looking for)
Herbie Hancock - Sextant
Sun Ra - Lanquidity
Angles 9 - Disappeared Behind The Sun
Sonny Sharrock - Black Woman
God - Possession
Suns of Kemet - My Queen Is A Reptile
Ultralyd - Chromosome Gun
The Electric Noise Twist - Self Titled

You should try listening to some Frank Zappa because he's the only guy I can think of who mixes jazz with musique concrete but only on a handful of tracks.

This album was instrumental in getting me super deep into Jazz. It is truly profound. I honestly can't even listen to it anymore because it is too emotionally intense for me. It's so good it makes me feel uncomfortable.

some free jazz most likely - there's all sorts of ridiculousness intensity-wise, I'm sure

that said, I like Art Blakey's Free for All for how relatively intense it is for early 60's swinging hard-bop
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJBLA39spc4

John Zorn's Spy vs Spy that's essentially Ornette Coleman's music done with a hardcore punk influence is pretty intense stuff
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibDlBuEdeTM

not a lot of stereo experimentation in jazz apart from chaotic free'ish jazz with different instruments in different channels - Spy vs Spy has some of that with two alto saxophones soloing simultaneously, but it's mainly for harshness purposes

Miles Davis and producer Teo Macero put some effort to using studio techniques more - Bitches Brew is a little bit more easier to wrap your head around once you realize that both stereo channels have separate drummers and bassists.

For musique concrete, one assumes there has to be something - most likely in the free improvisation direction. I would be surprised if there are not albums with improvisation on top of some natural sounds or something, even though jazz tries to be a spontaneous improvised art and building sound collages is a little antithetic to jazz impression

I love Third Ear Recitation by David S Ware. especially the first track, blows my mind every time
