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. Carpal Tunnel, the last album to be released during his lifetime, documented his struggle with the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in his right hand which had rendered him unable to grip a plectrum. The problem marked the onset of motor neurone disease, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. 1987 Moment Précieux with Anthony Braxton (Victo). 1988 Cyro with Cyro Baptista (Incus). 1990 Figuring with Barre Phillips (Incus).
Derek Bailey, Anthony Braxton. This is a reunion of sorts, considering Anthony Braxton and Derek Bailey teamed for a series of duets in London during the '70s. Putting these two giants of improvised music together then and now seems a natural, but as is the case with their earlier efforts, this 1986 recording is a bit disappointing

But Derek Bailey is really not an easy guy to warm up to at first, and I’m not sure those solo albums are places to start. So let me offer a few other points of entry.
