Derek Bailey-Pieces For Guitar

Derek Bailey Pieces For Guitar:

A series of solo free jazz guitar solos. Though atonal, and often quite harsh, theres a variety of moods and textures explored on this album. Bailey sometimes sounds like Monk at his most vicious and sometimes like a contemplative Anton Webern. He experiments readily with feedback and live panning and utilizes them not as bells and whistles, but as meaningful compositional elements. Interesting for anybody who wants to here experimental music with more of a point than just breaking down pre-established rules.

Rating: 12/15 meaningful skronks
