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):  

If it has a "handbook" it's almost NOT free jazz by definition!  
It's a JOKE!
