More Doug Lofstrom in 1981' s Spontaneous Combustion, but free jazz

I should have realized from the title that we were to expect free jazz and spontaneous improvs and been a bit more circumspect.  What I find most irritating about free jazz is the mix of pure noise with dissonant atonal (which I often don't mind) and ridiculous dixieland sounds that are completely incongruent, as if you had a patch of renaissance cherub and Madonna inside a Pollock.

Here's the last track, thankfully brief:

  3. Thanks Julian. Very interesting music as I'm much more amenable to free improvisation. On another note, I recently finally caught up with the East River Consort post. Great record! Would you be open to sharing the Noonan, Levi and Houshmand LP?

    Anyway, all the best!
