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. Steve Smith

Not your average free improv blow-out, this is lyrical, inventive & intelligent. Mellow and beautiful enough to appeal to a wide range of ears. The recording is fantastic with a lovely room ambience. Rory C
