So I am looking for a playlist with some smooth and crazy instrumental jazz. I can’t study without jazz. All playlists I have found is either with too much voice or too calm.
Here's a playlist that I've personally been building whilst studying the genre of free jazz. Let me know what you think:

This is a goldmine! Thanks a lot. Really enjoying both playlists. It’s amazing how mad jazz can get
You're welcome @matilda1awesome 🙂
I'd definitely delve deeper into the worlds of Peter Brötzmann and Mats Gustafsson for two great European Saxophonists leading the way in modern, improvised Jazz.
They get a lot of their inspiration from Evan Parker it seems, who's a titan on the improvised jazz circuit.He features heavily on the second disc of Binker and Moses' latest album. It may look like a prog record, but they're the most promising newcomers in the free jazz world:

I really enjoyed listening to Binker and Moses. The balance of each instrument and such on is quite impressive. Saxophone is truly powerful and extraordinarily addictive!

The Crazy Mad Big Bang playlist lives up to its name. There are a few parlando parts, but they are incidental. https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0SyMBqAH1xkIOsXBQrfkfZ
This is the most chaotic jazz I know of, though I dont think it will help studying!
Hi @matilda1awesome I start this Playlist last year Contemporary Jazz, I love jazz and love to find new tracks, and try to add only recent tracks, hope you enjoy it as much as I do. By the way @Jack great recommendations.
