Derek Bailey... RIP...


A first brief post to mourn the passing of the great avant-garde guitar player Derek Bailey – and to celebrate his work. Two tracks from the 1975 album: 'Improvisation.' Here's a great interview with Derek on Ubu Web. (This might not be working today as Ubu web have been having some problems). Another one from 1996 here...
More general information about his life and work here...

yankees was the first i ever heard of him. and listening to the album at first outraged me but kept me wanting more. now years later and after reading of his life and his book and seeing him play (on video) he is a father to my playing of the harmonica.
namaste to him his friends and his family.
