- Dear Uma,
Tom Chan's list is great, but add some Europe (the former Soviet block as
well).Try Ganelin Trio Sergei
Kuryokhin Ways of Freedom on Leo Records (Poco a Poco is a must) and- both
CDs are reissues of an underground Soviet
projects of mid 80s.
John Zorn, Tim berne, ned Rothenberg(just saxophonists, yes - may be ir is
not an accident?).Of Course? there is Dabe Dopugals
Zorn is differen, try Masada Quartet if you prefer acoustics anf the Big
Gundown if you like Morricone posmodernism.
(I think Wynton Marsalis & Co stuf is almost 50 years old style-wise)
If you are inetersted in contemporary improvised scene slightly beyond
acoustic jazz - new Scandinavian projects like Supersilent on the Rune
Grammofon label)will work.
I personaly met a lot classicaly oriented musicians who has become jazz fans
through the ECM catalogue, but for me most of itrs produstions seem to
"sterile". Bur earlier(70s)Garbarek<Keith Jarrett and Art Ensemble of
Chicago are "in the groove"as we here in Eastern Europe used to say.
Or this is the way to start with samplers which mist of the companys
ar least the Knitting factory, Gramavision, Label Bleu, ECM
I envy you - what a wonderful world you may discover

> just go check out the Morton/Cook Penguin Guide to Jazz?Yes, 5th edition is a stunning collection of reviews (all the previous
editions as well),the best one on European musicians, but still it lacks
some great names (Kip Hanrahan etc).
Steve Day's book "Two Full Ears" would give some cue for unintiated, but
fopr me it lacks something essential may be "focus"?
