Interesting for the links, but i'd seriously have to disagree with those listed as such examples, i mean its interesting to see how the referenced pieces by these "jazz" musicians relate to a specific genre of music but alot of those musicians i'd hardly consider "free jazz" by the term, as it seems to be an increasingly very heavy and common misconception of what "free jazz" means or is. Herbie Hancock is barely free jazz and Joe Zawinul??? The referenced Don Cherry piece is actually quite a composed work... Is this free jazz guide for beginners written by a beginner??? I think the writer er i say "blogger" should actually re-read (or did they even read it!) their referenced link: Common Misconceptions About Free Jazz

Crosscurrent from 1949 by Lennie Tristano (Sextet) contains two tracks that are the first purely improvised work in recorded jazz. Prior to this, it was Charlie Parker who had raised eyebrows with his personalized, stylistic "free" solo reading on the standard "Cherokee," a song he first learned a lot by and which he had been riffing with for years and years. On Crosscurrent (also titled Intuition on some releases), Lennie (who was also playing with Parker towards his end) sketches lines on the piano as the often overlooked Warne Marsh blows some inspired figures and Arnold Fishkin doodles on the guitar. Harold Granowsky and Billy Bauer provide the rhythm.
