Help me make sense of Free Jazz

I've been listening to jazz for some time, but I haven't been able to get into free jazz. Whenever I try to listen to free jazz albums, they sound chaotic to me. It sounds like pure noise and my mind can't seem to digest it. I'd like to be able to understand and appreciate free jazz better. Are there any particularly accessible free jazz albums that you could suggest I try? Or any sort of approach for being able to "get" free jazz?

What Else is Like the Peter Gunn Theme?

The "Pink Panther" theme and the "Peter Gunn" theme are both jazz pieces created by Henry Mancini in the 1960's. But musically, how are they similar? If I add Lalo Schifrin's "Mission Impossible" theme ... is this a particular flavor or genre of jazz? If I like these as music, what other pieces (that are not necessarily theme songs) would I like?

Design Patterns / Jazz Standards

Hello MeFi. I'm curious as to the correlation between software development Design Patterns for and Jazz Standards. Usual loot from Google: Some dude who thought of it first (and used it as a nice allegoric explanation in Programmers Stackexchange and a somewhat geeky ironic coding-related mention ("Jazz supports interaction through event listeners"). These are all nice examples of the basic similarity between the two, I'm looking for more, though. Are you aware of any materials that somehow approach this idea?

What is the story of this Jazz story?

I need a jazz score

I'm making a short (20 second) animation in the style of John Hubley's commercials and I'm looking for some music similar to this ad to score it. It needs to be just bass and drums (mostly bass) with no trumpet or vocals or anything. I know Dizzie Gillespie worked with Hubley so I've been listening to his last.fm station all day but I can't find anything that doesn't have too much trumpet. Public domain would be great (but not essential).

What is this Jazz song, or artist, from the TV show Louie?

What is this Jazz song, or artist, from the TV show Louie? I was watching Louie the other day, and the song during the credits is wonderful. Season 2: Episode 3: "Moving". Here's the clip that I recorded: http://www.esnips.com/doc/f87738ad-8d2a-4ee8-bca5-2093fcf5c6b8/Louie-Jazz You can also just hear it during the credits of that episode, if you go to Hulu.

“Time for Lyons” sure doesn't sound like France

Asking for a friend: I've been listening to one of my favourite jazz tunes, “Time for Lyons” played in this case by Lionel Hampton. It's a lovely, dreamy, tuneful piece but I've always wondered about the title. It sure as hell has nothing to do with France... The composer is Gerry Mulligan and I'd wondered it was a drug reference, as in ‘Time for Lines’. Any clues?

Where can I find an outstanding jazz bar in London?

Where are some awesome jazz bars in London? I am looking for somewhere that has a resident live band... the kind of thing you'd imagine Brad Pitt and George Clooney planning a casino heist in with both of them wearing suit and shirt with no tie. Whilst drinking Scotch. Bonus points if it's a place that has an entrance fee to discourage the riff-raff.

European Jazz Piano Recommendations?

I love the music of Scandinavian jazz piano trios like Tord Gustavsen and EST and records such as 'Trio' and 'January' by Marcin Wasilewski-Slawomir Kurkiewicz-Michal Miski. Which similar piano based jazz albums should I check out? I'm after quiet, melodic, almost impressionist pieces rather than fifty scales a second fusion workouts or anyone playing the thing with their elbow.
