Come on, guys! Free jazz is a purely improvisational form generally
seen as disgarding the "rules" of conventional jazz, including set
chord changes, tempo, key signatures, and other structures (listen
to Ornette Coleman): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_jazz
If it has a "handbook" it's almost NOT free jazz by definition!
It's a JOKE!
