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?
>>87176957OP: I really, really, really like this image
>>87176992Ok. What's your favorite jazz album.
>>87176957Don Cherry - Orientegg-core
>>87176957this version of no love is inferior to the original
>>87176957definitely this. I love the drums of Elvin Jones on this.
>>87176992hot hot leg
Mulatu Astatke - Ethiopiques Vol. 4Alice Coltrane - Ptah The El Daoud
>most intenseProbably Machine Gun for something good or some retarded Japanese shit for overall.>stero [sic] experimentationBitches Brew (beginning of the title track)>jazz w/musique concreteGil 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 albumTim Berne - The Shell Game
>>87176957>jazz albums that mix in musique concreteGround 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.
>>87178974I forgot Yosuke Yamashita's Spider is intense, Return To Forever's Romantic Warrior, and Hadrien Féraud'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.

>>87180665Jazz is for intellectuals like myself.
>>87180652his duet album with Brotzmann was greatwhatthefuckdoyouwant I think was the actual name lmao
>>87178249OP this is your best answer
Definitely check out Last Exit which I think someone mentioned earlier in the thread
>>87176957Miles Davis - Black BeautyMiles Davis - Live At The Fillmore East (this is probably what you're looking for)Herbie Hancock - SextantSun Ra - LanquidityAngles 9 - Disappeared Behind The SunSonny Sharrock - Black WomanGod - PossessionSuns of Kemet - My Queen Is A ReptileUltralyd - Chromosome GunThe Electric Noise Twist - Self TitledYou 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.
>>87178249This 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.

>>87176957some free jazz most likely - there's all sorts of ridiculousness intensity-wise, I'm surethat said, I like Art Blakey's Free for All for how relatively intense it is for early 60's swinging hard-bophttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJBLA39spc4John 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=ibDlBuEdeTMnot 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 purposesMiles 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
>>87176957I love Third Ear Recitation by David S Ware. especially the first track, blows my mind every time
