    Isn't the scale just depending on how 'free' the jazz is?

    Ella fitzgerald @ scale point 1. I challenge any wife to dislike Ella.

      But there can be some quite soothing free jazz.
      Discordancy, experimental rhythm, and instrument choice also needs to be taken into account.

      I think this ranking of instruments fits alongside Sie´s 7 levels.

      1. Tinkly cat-on-a- piano stuff/ abstract brushwork
      2. Rambling sitar noodles/congas
      3. Fender Rhodes/double bass explorations
      4. Baritone sax/ / random cymbals
      5. Tenor sax/ polyrhythmic trap drummer
      6. Alto sax and clarinet/ non-percussion instruments used as percussion
      7. Arabic shawms/ tape noises/synths etc.

        I agree.

        There is an *excellent* album on Japanese jazz label Three Blind Mice by a group called AIR. From 1977. Very experimental, both instrumentation and tape loops, but so super laid-back, it really is a wonderful recording...

        (sorry, cant find a pic or audio link)

        Anyway - it's the audio equivalent of placing a frog into cold water and warming it up to the boil. By the time she realised she'd listened to over 15 minutes of free jazz, it was too late...
        If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

          Also, don't forget how bothersome jazz fusion can be.

              Transfer to a Pet Shop Boys/Old bill related mash up as follows -

              1. West End Boys
              2. DJ Culture
              3. Can You Forgive Her?
              4. I'm With Stupid
              5. What Have I Done To Deserve This?
              6. Being Boring
              7. Domestic related Criminal Damage/Assault emergency call.....

              And I'm with Paul K, my cut off is pre-level one, happily married.

              It's all downhill from here.

                  Word.

                  What would level 7 on a jazz fusion bothering scale be..?

                  Weather Report..?

                  Those dudes tip me over the edge.

                    A little lacking in structure perhaps?

                    (It sounds like an orchestra tuning up in the pit for 28 minutes)

                      Weather Report? Bothering? Naaaaah.
                      They construct melodies and structure everything. Black Market is a cool LP imho.
                      Gotta be way more Level 7 Jazz Fusion out there.

                        Go for it. I duck out after Weather Report...

                          I may have to duck as well for repping Weather Report. I have a vague recollection of their output being comprehensively lambasted on another forum. Each to their own though. I may be able to return here later in the week with some Level 7 suggestions as I have several dust covered contenders to rinse through for samples before discarding!

                            I believe this is where you can find this type of jazz.

                              Hermeto´s live Montreux lp is also a solid gold "if we can make it through this, we can make it through anything" marriage tester.
