liclon This might be my favorite album of his. Track 2 Listening to JR is some beautiful emotional music. It brought me to tears my first listen. Favorite track: Listening to JR.

Steve Smith I've recommended this album as an ideal introduction to Derek Bailey's singular art for more than 20 years…what a pleasure it is to find it on Bandcamp, where I'm glad for the opportunity to purchase and recommend it anew. Tracks 1-3 find Bailey in characteristically flinty, mercurial form; in tracks 4, 6 & 7 you imagine him luxuriating in his instrument's warm, rich sound, and "Interlude" is one of his priceless accompanied chats. Consistently brilliant, with surprises throughout. Favorite track: Mart of Time part 1.
