Chico Freeman - The Outside Within (1978)

Eastern-tinged, nocturnal jazz led by saxophonist Chico Freeman. While much of the album has a dark, late-night feel, there's a sustained sense of tension throughout that periodically culminates in cathartic bursts of full-on chaos, preventing the listener from ever getting too comfortable.

Track listing:
1. The Search
2. Undercurrent
3. Luna
4. Ascent

Close to you alone

Also listen to:
Sam Rivers -
Contours (1965)
Jan Garbarek -
Esoteric Circle (1969)
