The ICP Orchestra, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Vandermark 5, NRG Ensemble etc. are good places to start. If you can get into that then you might want to come back to the freely improvised stuff later (which I know isn't what this thread was intended to be about, but I think that is what a lot of people take free jazz to mean).

Best (perhaps) concert I've ever been to:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SeNtD...eature=related
That's my head obnoxiously swinging back and forth in front of Han's snare drum!
