The Loft Generation

During this time innumerable artists settle in the warehouses and abandoned studios of certain areas of New York City and transformed them into living quarters, spaces for work and centers for distributing their records. In these places, the musicians were able to express themselves and produce their work without having to be concerned about the commercial aspects of the traditional clubs or disturbing their neighbors. Interdependent with the elders of free jazz, they were pre-occupied with the isolation of the free movement and gladly publicized their concern about returning to a rhythmic and melodic legibility. Thus, when they listened to Albert Ayler or David Murray, they made every effort to extract the lyrical dimension of the music.

The new excitement - which corresponded to a similar feeling in all the arts - facilitated exchanges between the heirs to free jazz and bop. Nevertheless, Ornette Coleman then opened his 'harmolodic' universe in an entirely different direction. His funk quartet made a direct reference to the harshness of popular black music, inherited from James Brown.

  1. Hi Yunus.

    Visiting your blog at your request.
    Looking very nice.
    Do you intend to share only information or also music?
    Most people looking for downloads, that's the reality of music blogs.
    As for your question:
    "Did you mistakenly print/scheduled the date of your this post as September 2012?"
    That was done on purpose. Thus this post will always appear as the first post on the top front page of the blog.
    Good luck with your blog and all the best.
