If your tastes run to the “creative”, “avant garde”, “experimental”, or “free form”, there’s plenty of non-traditional music in this episode. Canadian Paul Plimley has long been at the forefront of free jazz, both in Canada and internationally. Sensaround is an Australian-Scottish trio that delves into improvised sound creation and ambient. Portuguese drummer Joao Lencastre’s “Parallel Realities” focuses on free expression of smaller groups within the larger, while the quartet, From Wolves To Whales – saxophonist Dave Rempis, trumpeter Nate Wooley, bassist Pascal Niggenkemper and drummer Chris Corsano show how powerful group improvisation can be.

There’s no disputing the place that Evan Parker occupies in the free jazz realm. On his latest release for Intakt, he’s joined by turntablists and electronicists as they react and interpret various samplings of Parker’s music collection, while the amazing Englishman plays with abandon. In contrast, another saxophonist, David Leon, manipulates his horn to experiment with pitch, texture, and microtonalism.

Balancing on the edge of “free”, the combination of some AACM members and two brilliant French rhythm players (Denis Fournier drums and Bernard Santacruz, bass) is another highlight of this episode of One Man’s Jazz, which happens to be the 1st year anniversary of making the show available on mixcloud.com and allaboutjazz.com., a year that’s flown by .
