Derek Bailey – What Is It (2000)

derekbailey

Welcome to the strange and beautiful world of Derek Bailey, the late king of freely-improvised guitar. Bailey made a lot of recordings in various contexts: solo, duos, small ensembles and large groups. All are worth checking out. On 2000′s Mirakle he teamed up with Jamaaladeen Tacuma on bass and Calvin Weston on drums. Definitely a formidable pair. Mirakle was a good introduction to this style of play as the funk rhythm section give the uninitiated listener something familiar to hold onto while the more “alien” guitar does its thing.
