Free Jazz for me man. Especially the Mingus stuff done in the vane of Free Jazz, like "The Complete Town Hall Concert"-though I never loved the music, it was out there. A lot of it seemed disconected, but every once in a while they would hit a groove that really transported your out of your chair. It always got me in that way.

I always felt that Mickey Hearts Albums could transcend reality in a similar way.

Then for just straight up wierd but good, I think maybe Frank Zappa's stuff. Mothers of Invention probably being my fav.

Rick Wakeman is my musical idol along with Loreena McKennitt, which is a bit of an odd combination, but hey, I'm proud of having varied taste.

I suppose I should apologise at this point by the way -methinks it was I who alerted our comrade thread-starter to the fact that Rick's still recording. I've seen him live many times since '2000, and each show has been superb. As for his albums -well, a shot of mysticism, but his tongue is firmly wedged in cheek with many, like The Myth's and Legends etc. Great fun, though not for everybody, I admit. Progressive rock got a bit of a bad reputation for excess -deservedly so in some ways, but look at it this way: who are the more talented, Pink Floyd or Britney Spears. Bit of a no-brainer really.

I've lost count of the number of albums Rick's released over the past 35 or so years -it must be over 70, and all are excellent. Greatest keyboard player of all time? Without a doubt. And that was through playing ability -he doesn't need to hold live audiences' attention by slamming knives into his instruments. Their attention never wavers in the first place.

Another vote for Loreena McKennitt!!!!! Bonny swans......

A 70's group (that kind of faded away after several albums) that always worked for me was Soft Machine.

Nope, I didn't forget Keith Emmerson, just not to my taste I'm afraid. Rick never needed to slam knives into his keyboards to keep his live audiences attention...

Camel and Gong...

Wow, there is a blast from the past. Both great bands. 'The Snow Goose' by Camel is excellent. And Gong is always a pleaser, as well. My first taste was 'You'. They had a sound like no other. What ever happened to Steve Hillage?

As far as Kieth Emerson goes, I like him to. Its not like you have to like one or the other. They both are capable musicians. I like Kieths early work as well, when he was with Nice.
