Default Derek Bailey

He was an Avant-Garde guitarist and a leader in the free improv movement. I think he's influenced people like David Grubbs (can't honestly think of another example) but, comparing David Grubbs' experimental stuff on the acoustic it's rather obvious he was. I've only been able to find "Improvisation", so if anyone has any of his albums... then would you please?

I discovered Derek Bailey a month or two back.
Be warned though. Very Avant Garde.

I discovered this guy a while ago and I failed to really "get" his music. I knew I would come to like it if I really tried and gave his music a good listen, but I never had the patience. I think I'm going to try again though. When I found out about this guy, I wasn't into stuff like John Zorn and Sun Ra.

Gastr Del Sol was my bridge to Bailey's music, tough stuff to digest when you are new to avant-garde I guess.

I think maybe he is sort of a gateway drug to europian free improvized music, like Coleman is to free jazz. Very interesting artist, he also has some really good books written about improv itself. For me it's interresting comparing his usual stuff with his last album Carpal tunnel (since he has Carpal tunnel syndrome in his late years..) Still sounds amasing

I'm a fan of some of his work with Evan Parker.
