Re: the stuff I hipped you to:
Alegre All Stars - Was basically looking for some Afro Cuban jazz (am a big Dizzy fan and had gotten a bunch of his albums at the time) and stumbled across them. Only checked out the comp so far rather than individual albums but it's really ####ing cool and strikes me as great party music (haven't played it for people yet though).
Last Exit - If you're also not familiar with Sharrock's stuff, you should definitely check it out (especially "Ask The Ages" and "Black Woman"). But Last Exit's studio album is probably as good as anything he's done. The live stuff is something else entirely- maybe the noisiest and most intense jazz I've ever heard, so tread lightly (of the numerous live sets, I find the self titled album to be the most interesting/tolerable).
Dewan Motihar - Inherently a bit awkward and cheesy (can imagine hippies flopping around to this album back in '67 when it came out) but still way better than I would have imagined something like this to turn out, which is a testament to the group's interplay. The Indian musicians may seem a bit primitive if you're used to Ravi Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan but it's still really well executed IMO.
Love Cry Want - Also really noisy and intense but considerably easier to take than live Last Exit. Very unique sound- I've never heard Larry Young play quite like he does here. About as good as free jazz gets IMO.
