Jazz Festival-Goer Calls Police on Larry Ochs, "This is not Jazz!"

Oh, the wonderful hilarity that brightens up the -FUPPETS- day. Members of Spain's Civil Guard police force arrived at the Siguenza Jazz Festival seeking to investigate allegations that free-jazz saxophonist Larry Ochs' music was not Jazz.
The Larry Ochs Sax and Drumming Core was performing their normal psycho-skronk freak-outs when the police showed up. They seemed to agree with the gentleman that filed a complaint that they were not Jazz. Ha! Too funny. The very best part is this;

The jazz purist claimed his doctor had warned it was "psychologically inadvisable" for him to listen to anything that could be mistaken for mere contemporary music. - ( Giles Tremlett - Guardian UK )

Too funny, but it is understandable. Mr. Ochs performs high-level skree and cutting-edge skronk, and if you are not ready for it, it will make you shit your pants.
Here is a video of the group performing recently at a club called the White House, in Orlando Florida.


-FUPPETS- says, if it's too loud, you're too old.
