Yeah me too. There's the ocassional surprisingly good album from the free era, say 'First Meditations' is very restrained from squealings and pure chatoic moments, unlike the original 'Meditations'. 
'Stellar Regions' and 'Expressions' also have some pleasant moments, even a track with Coltrane on flute all through.

After getting Ascension Pablo that was it. I have kept away from his last stuff. I have listened to samples from the later Avante ones but just not me. I either love an Avante style album or it is the exact opposite. Like Threadgill, Don Cherry. Chicago Art  Ensemble but Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor drive me nuts. They have to keep that thread of structure at least.

^like I said, I'm with you, I'm no avant-garde/free jazz fan either, just a couple of stuff that really isn't "free". Say those samples I passed you from Archie Shepp or mostly Pharoah Sanders which is amazing for me.

I go out onstage, and my intention is to make the first four rows bleed from their ears.

So far, my favorite's Ascension, but I have quite a lot to hear.  A Love Supreme is right up there with it, followed by Giant Steps and Blue Trane.

My favorite JC album is My Favorite Things.

That's Kenny G with Miles Davis on my avatar, by the way.

 ^ I don't know if I'd say there's a best song per se, it's more of a totality
