In the original introduction to the book, the authors define free jazz as a revolutionary mix of politics and music intolerable for mainstream, bourgeois listeners and critics. It approaches jazz the way the Black Power movement approaches politics. They recognize the influence of Amiri Baraka’s writings on their outlook, but stray from his cultural nationalism to assert that free jazz participates in global, anti-colonial struggles. They mean to expose how free jazz forces this struggle into critical discourse.
