Bailey, Derek - Ballads

SKU TZ7607
Yes, this is for real. Experimental guitar wizzard Derek Bailey performs a program of his favorite standards in his own inimitable and energetic style. Inspired and energized by a very special vintage acoustic arch-top guitar, this intriguing solo recording is a one-of-a-kind chance to hear the master pioneer of non-idiomatic free improvisation perform compositions from the American songbook. A textbook of originality for years to come, this is one of the most vexing and enjoyable CDs Derek has ever made. Insightful liner notes by Marc Ribot vainly attempts to explain the proceedings.
