Derek Bailey (29 January 1930 – 25 December 2005) was an English avant-garde guitarist and figure in the free improvisation movement. Bailey abandoned conventional performance techniques found in jazz, exploring atonality, noise, and whatever unusual sounds he could produce with the guitar. Much of his work was released on his own label Incus Records

Although still very much under the influence of Webern, Bailey was already committed to the idea of non-idiomatic free improvisation, even if he arguably hadn't quite achieved that goal by this time. Compared to his work from only a couple of years later, these pieces are considerably more on the melodic and jazz-tinged end of things (he even comes close to quoting Monk!), although even so, they certainly would have gotten him unceremoniously removed from most stages in 1966-1967.

Solo Guitar (Derek Bailey album). Solo Guitar (later referred to as Volume 1) is a solo album by guitarist Derek Bailey which was recorded in London on July 13, 1970 and became the second release on the Incus label.

Today, the sprightly 72-year-old still occupies a position of opposition to composition, dedicating his life to inhabiting the moment, but this new archival release complicates free improvisation's cornerstone creation myth. Here's Bailey in 1966/7, in a bedsit off the King's Road, documenting his own fragmentary, spidery scores for scarified guitar

Bailey was a conventional session and studio player originally, then a free-player in the 1960s, then began the phase documented here. He started transcribing Webern's serial music to break the usual moulds of guitar technique, and moved on to abstract sound generation - brittle, behind-the-bridge noises, glimmering electronics, raw, percussively struck discords. These pieces sound like isolated fragments from a musical notebook, and lack the momentum of Bailey's collaborations with others.

He never played a bum note in his life. Every single one was meant.
I don't know why, but I've always found Derek's approach to guitar playing to be much more interesting on paper rather than recorded. I adore Keiji Haino, Fred Frith and several other avant-garde guitarists but this album, along with several others released under Bailey's name just annoys and bores me. Alot of fans I've talked to describes themselves getting lost and mesmerized by his playing. It's probably me who's a dullard.That said, I realise that he's definitely a very talented guitar player, and he still inspires me to some degree.How would I describe this record? Alot of random notes and chords, bum notes and the like. I don't really enjoy this at all.
