It's good to hear all this prime Bailey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:25pm coelacanth:

it's the challenges that strengthen us.
  3:26pm P-90:

Hi Kurt and friends. Reporting for my Bailey lesson.
  3:35pm Brendan:

I love that part where he goes der der dang der dang it sounds totally different than anything else he has done.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm Stepchild:

Only problem today same as every day: not enough time! Too many Derek Baileys. Hope we get the funk!
Avatar 3:42pm Sem Chumbo:

A tribute to and a schoolin' in the improvisation of Sr. Bailey et al. Wild, wacky and wonderful. Hiya, KG, and sundry miniatures.
  3:46pm Brendan:

This crazy good . Dude was a bad ass riffer!
Avatar 3:52pm TDK60:

Definitely a challenging musician; have heard some of him before, on WFMU and elsewhere, but don't know much.
Avatar 3:52pm steve:

this is most excellent. 1971, wow!
Avatar 3:53pm TDK60:

Yeah Steve, 1971. Is that a wah-wah? Or other? Either way, it sounds fresh still.
Avatar 3:54pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i'd guess a phlanger, if they were even around back then.
Avatar 3:54pm Kurt Gottschalk:

flanger? i've always thought it was a 'ph.' huh.
Avatar 3:55pm Kurt Gottschalk:

les paul used a flanger in the 1950s
  3:55pm DG:

VCS3-- probably no guitar to be found on this track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:57pm common:

  3:57pm mark:

Where ARE the police (in Truman Capote's voice)
Avatar 3:58pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i bet there was a guitar plugged in! maybe not strummed but plugged.
Avatar 3:58pm steve:

VCS3 has audio in, it can be used as a giant guitar pedal what with the filters and LFOs
Avatar 4:00pm steve:

VCS3 has one of the best filter sounds ever (used in Pink Floyd's On The Run), guess its not surprising that piece so specifically ear tickling
  4:02pm DG:

Yeah-- not able to distinguish from env follower guitar input or built in oscillators on these laptop speakers. Either way, makes me wish there would have been a Thomas Lehn/Derek Bailey session!
  4:07pm JakeGould:

Hey there!
  4:07pm DG:

Everyone should seek out the DB interview with Henry Kaiser on the OtherMinds archive.org page after this btw! Fun to hear him kind of just mucking around gentlemanly.
Avatar 4:08pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks, dg
Avatar 4:12pm TDK60:

Some guitar pedals were around in '71, wah-wahs, fuzz pedals. But I thought flangers weren't available to the general public til late in the '70s. Maybe I'm wrong? But, Les Paul used a flanger in the Fifties?! Must have been a special device, eh?
  4:16pm tino:

Les Paul was using vari-speed tape machines for his flange..
Avatar 4:18pm Cheri Pi:

Thanks for the Bailey KG! Perfect for today, I have a DB postcard signed by Brian Turner on my fridge.
Avatar 4:18pm Kurt Gottschalk:

right - i meant to say a flange effect, not a flange pedal. thanks, tino.
Avatar 4:19pm Kurt Gottschalk:

thanks for tuning in, cheri! i was wondering if you'd be around so i could wish you a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Avatar 4:20pm Cheri Pi:

Ah shucks thanks Kurt!!!
Avatar 4:25pm Cecile:

so cool, Cheri!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm northguineahills:

Damn, I just had to go run an errand and miss almost half of the Derek Bailey special. I had a 7" version of Bailey/Gaines piece. I traded to a friend for a Bailey cd and just forgot to get back.
  4:26pm Brendan:

In retrospect i can hear DB s influence in Beefheart
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm northguineahills:

...or was it another dancer...?
Avatar 4:27pm Cecile:

I hear a lot of Bailey in Nels Cline.
Avatar 4:27pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the only other dancer i know of db working with was min tanaka, tho there were probably others.
Avatar 4:28pm Cecile:

I don't know if Beefheart would have heard Bailey. Weren't those Incus recordings in small quantities in those days, and barely imported?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm common:

good call about the nels cline, cecile! thinkin' the same.
Avatar 4:30pm Cecile:

and of course Eugene Chadbourne!
Avatar 4:31pm Cheri Pi:

I had a dream about Chadbourne the other night...weird.
Avatar 4:33pm Kurt Gottschalk:

incus lps were mail order and people were certainly getting them here. in fact, oddly enough, we're gonna hear eugene chadbourne talking about just that in about a half hour.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm common:

heading out into a blizzard (the sun was just out...strange) beeeeesies everyone!!! thanks kurt!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm common:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm northguineahills:

I found and old Incus LP from the 70s at an indie record store in Tallahassee, FL, for about $10 in 1999. I don't think they new what they had. Oh, life before discogs.....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:46pm northguineahills:

Didn't Derek Bailey do a Company week at Tonic before he died? I'm not sure if I'm conflating one of those shows w/ other times I saw him.
Avatar 4:47pm Kurt Gottschalk:

oh yeah, more than once.
  4:50pm mark:

I once saw Eugene Chadbourne play an electric rake!
Avatar 4:51pm Kurt Gottschalk:

the electric birdcage was another fave.
Avatar 4:52pm Cecile:

I saw the rake, too!

And the guitarist for their opening band played slide guitar with a bust of Jackie Kennedy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:53pm northguineahills:

me too, mark!
  5:00pm Dean:

I confess I really like the double disk with Pat Metheny.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:01pm coelacanth:

hmm...i started,but got sidetracked, to make a large kalimba from a rake. maybe it should be electric?
  5:03pm Emile:

loved the show, thanks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:05pm northguineahills:

His Playbacks album has a good "talk" (about George)
Avatar 5:05pm steve:

excellent show today.

maybe this has been covered but were there many/any Bailey / Sonny Sharrock collabs? i googled and found one all star improv group cd featuring both.
Avatar 5:05pm steve:

wait, he just said Sonny Sharrock. what
Avatar 5:08pm Kurt Gottschalk:

i'm no familiar with a db/ss collab but there were so many improv meetings it surely happened
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Carmichael:

I have seen Henry Kaiser more than a few times. He's a funny, strange, talented fellow.
Avatar 5:13pm Kurt Gottschalk:

super talented! He has a week at the stone next month.
  5:14pm Emile:

Wow this recording is making me love DB even more - wonderful
Avatar 5:16pm Marcel M:

Oh man I'll have to go back and dig all this Derek on the archives.
Avatar 5:18pm Cecile:

Kurt, do you have any Steve Lacy with Derek Bailey? I do like the record they did together.
  5:19pm Dean:

I wish those guys would quit talking so I can hear the guitars. Or, no, I wish those guitarists would quit futzing so I can hear the discussion. Or, no...or something.
Avatar 5:19pm Marcel M:

This is great!
  5:20pm Dean:

I adore Kavi Alexander's work!
  5:20pm Emile:

awesome skip!!!!
  5:21pm Dean:

Once I had lunch at an Indian restaurant in Cerritos, site of a large Southern California Indian community. I mentioned to the server that the music they were piping in sounded a lot like some of Kavi's discography. He told me that it was the new, yet unreleased record (at the time), given to them by Kavi the day before when he'd dropped in for lunch!
Avatar 5:23pm Marcel M:

Oh man I'm in heaven. Bailey is certainly a personal hero for me as well.
  5:27pm GMMM:

I did not realize until recently that giraffes only sleep about 20 minutes a day. Maybe two hours on occasion but that is it.
  5:29pm Dean:

I'm gonna stick my neck out and challenge that statement, GMMM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:30pm northguineahills:

Play Backs is such a great album. Also, Guitar, Drum, & Bass, w/ dj ninj providing the d&b.
Avatar 5:32pm steve:

nice, i gotta check that out ngh
  5:34pm Emile:

What a genius
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:42pm coelacanth:

Thank you Kurt. i hope you didn't save the very best for last! (but i'll prob. come back to this episode anyway)

...I catch just a leetle Guitar fascination here...
Avatar 5:50pm Marcel M:

This is one of my favorite of his records.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:50pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Is Fripp out as a Bailey enthusiast - ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:52pm northguineahills:

Clicky star finger is all arthritic now.
Avatar 5:54pm Cecile:

great show, Kurt!
  5:57pm JakeGould:

Bye Kurt!

Avatar 5:58pm Marcel M:

Thank you Kurt that was great.
  5:58pm P-90:
