Polly, I was trying to find you some good links to the European collective improvisation, only to discover there are precious few clips online. The FMP label (I recommend you read about it here: http://www.fmp-label.de/index_en.php or via Google search) had an impressive artist stable of both European and American artists. I wanted to start you out with Peter Kowald's excellent Was Da Ist, but I can't find anything online.

Here's something from Alexander von Schlippenbach, the pianist. http://youtu.be/Kv7nls6ur9k

And a version of Take The A Train by Matthew Shipp: http://youtu.be/HfZmJSVAPQY

Okay, are you feeling nervy? When you are, let's see if you're ready for this classic. The slightly terrifying Machine Gun by Peter Brötzmann: http://youtu.be/27CpT79NMhQ
DUDE, we are speaking the same language. Von Schlippenbach Trio- "Pakistani Pomade" has got to be one of my favorite records of all time. Ill put this up because its absolutely brilliant and GUO was a straight up all star band of European free players:
