Some jazz, like:

John Coltrane - Meditations
John Coltrane - Interstellar Space
Albert Ayler - Spiritual Unity

My plan this summer is to educate myself on some jazz and prog rock, going through some "100 greatest jazz/prog rock albums of all time"-type of lists.

DIGIV051: [PHYSICS] “SPECTRAMORPHIC IRIDESCENCE”

Incredibly good, as per usual, when it comes to Digitalis releases.

Adding to that, The Peter Brotzmann Octet - Machine Gun.

For some strange reason I find free jazz a lot easier to get into than it's smoother cousins. Normal jazz somehow sounds more distant, I find it easier to connect with emotionally when the music sounds chaotic and a bit dangerous.

Re:what are you listening too lately 4 Years, 3 Months ago
I know it's got it's own thread below...but since Tomorrow's Harvest landed with me on Saturday ( I wasn't expecting it until today ... ) I've just hammered that. It's BOC's best album, IMHO. Incredible.

I bought the Jon Hopkins CD for a mate's birthday present, along with Old Apparatus - 'Compendium' as both sounded sick from what I heard, so I'm rather hoping said old friend will do me a copy of both of these.

60s hip musical masturbation jazz, no feeling or heart or groove or anything worthwhile, just a bunch of soulless musicans doing on their instruments what Mariah carry or Christian agulara do with their voice....l it's technically proficient but who the bells cares, it's terrible.

Was that a response to my post? Ie. John Coltraine, Albert Ayler and Peter Brötzmann?

I'm not in any way a jazz expert, in fact I know little to nothing about it. Those were just a few examples of the jazz I've liked the most lately. To me they sound extremely emotional and passionate (ie. the opposite of soulless). I've tried getting into more smoother forms of jazz (like Kind Of Blue), but I find it much harder to listen to, at least for a novice like me. Maybe it takes a few years of intense listening to learn to appreciate that kind of jazz.

But, like I said, I know nothing about jazz. Just a personal preference of a jazz-novice.

Edit: I suppose it's a bit same as noise music, or black metal. Sometimes it's fun to listen to more extreme stuff, to balance out the smooth deep house I mostly listen to.

And speaking of black metal, I'm just listening to Immortal.

The Twilight Singers - Dynamite Steps

It took me about 10 playthroughs before it grabbed me, weird because I fell for all their previous work the instant I heard it. It is a very good record and if you're into moody, bluesy, jazzy, poppy, triphoppy rock with electronics you will like it too:
