Derek BaileyAida (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1981. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $29.99
Derek Bailey sounds incredible here on Aida – not the famous opera written by Verdi, but instead a series of long, live improvisations dedicated to the late Aida Akira! Bailey is mindblowing throughout – playing at a level that easily makes you understand why his talents on the guitar were so revolutionary when first unleashed on the British scene in the 60s, and expanded further via recordings of the 70s – still completely amazing, even after decades of others trying to copy his sound, but never getting it right! Bailey makes the whole instrument sing – but here, he seems to have an especially tuneful touch on the strings – still relatively free and open, but with these ringing textures and tones that are simply breathtaking – both in the deftness of his own creative imagination, and in terms of fresh elements that can explode from the guitar. Titles include "Paris", "Niigata Snow", and "An Echo In Another's Mind". 2LP set features 2 unissued bonus tracks – "Inaudibles" and "Introductions". LP, Vinyl record album

Derek Bailey & Cyro BaptistaCyro (with bonus tracks) ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1982. New Copy 2LP (reissue)... $29.99
An amazing pairing of talents – one that yields some fantastic moments of improvisation! Cyro Baptista is a percussionist by nature, but here he also plays the Brazilian cuica – a unique instrument that has a single bowed string, in addition to more percussive elements – in a way that makes his performance on that instrument a perfect companion to Bailey's incredibly deft, endlessly imaginative work on the strings of the guitar! The pair work here with a clarity that seems to capture each unusual twist and turn, and moment of spontaneous creation – thanks, in part, to the recording efforts of Martin Bisi – and although we can't tell from the notes, it seems as if Baptista might be playing some other percussion instruments as well. Titles include "Tonto", "Joga Toca", "Quanto Tempo", "Polvo", "Toca Joga", and "Rio Branco". 2LP version features a full album of bonus improvisations – all previously unreleased!

CompanyCompany 1981 ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1981. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99
A lost chapter of the essential Company series of improvised recordings from the late 70s – music that was recorded by the BBC in 1981, and which continues the fantastic meeting of British and European players that made those earlier records so great! If anything, there may be even more creative intensity taking place here – a further move away from any jazz roots, even though the style is certainly done in a free jazz spirit – but with qualities that unlock sonic possibilities in the instruments that might not have been expected a decade before! Players include Derek Bailey on guitar, Tristan Honsinger on cello, Toshinori Kondo on trumpet, David Toop on flute and small instruments, Georgie Born on cello, Lindsay Cooper on bassoon, Radu Malfatti on trombone, and Jamie Muir on percussion. As with other Company records, the lineup shifts from track to track – and titles include "Come On & Hear", "Trackle", "Cackle", "Pass", "Trio", "Quartet", and "Heptarchy". LP, Vinyl record album

CompanyCompany 1983 ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1983. New Copy 2LP ... $29.99
Live work from the famous Company of improvising musicians on the UK scene – a performance recorded by the BBC in 1983, and issued here for the first time on record! The lineup of players is fairly large this time around, but comes together with all that careful sense of sound and space that always made Company one of the most inspirational improvising ensembles of their time – musicians who really listen to each other, never compete, and really create something special in the process. Players include Joelle Leandre on bass, JD Parran on basset horn and piccolo, Ernst Reijseger on cello and electric cello, Derek Bailey on guitars, Jamie Muir on percussion, Vinko Globkar on trombone, Peter Brotzmann on reeds, John Corbett on trumpet, Hugh Davies on electronics, and Evan Parker on clarinet – on the titles "First Choice", "Pile Ou Face"," JD In Paradise", "Een Plezierig Stukje", "La Horda", and "Seconde Choix".

CompanyEpiphanies I to VI ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1982. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $32.99
A fantastic addition to the "epiphanies" concept of the UK free jazz ensemble Company – one that extends the different groupings and shapings of lineup in a series of improvised performances from 1982! The tracks here recorded in the same stretch that yielded the initial Epiphany/Epiphanies album – and like that set, the music is kind of a push past the idea of an improvising orchestra – still a large lineup of musicians, but with more personal, individual passages that really illuminate the way the collective sounds come together. The set features Fred Frith on guitar and electronics, George Lewis on trombone, Anne Le Baron on harp, Keith Tippett on piano, Phil Wachsmann on violin and electronics, Julie Tippetts on guitar and voice, Ursula Oppens on piano, Moto Yoshizawa on bass, and Akio Suziki on glass harmonica and gongs – and this set features the first six "Epiphanies" performances recorded during Company Week in 1982.

CompanyEpiphany/Epiphanies ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1982. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
A large version of the Company concept – and one that continues all the experiments of their recorded legacy in a really great way! As with the others, guitarist Derek Bailey is at the core here – working sonic magic on both acoustic and electric guitar – in a lineup that also features Fred Frith on guitar and electronics, George Lewis on trombone, Anne Le Baron on harp, Keith Tippett on piano, Phil Wachsmann on violin and electronics, Julie Tippetts on guitar and voice, Ursula Oppens on piano, Moto Yoshizawa on bass, and Akio Suziki on glass harmonica and gongs! There's a great sense of opportunity and discovery here – as improvising heavyweights mix with less familiar names – and acoustic elements find a way to come into play with more electric sources. The first album features "Epiphany" – a large group improvisation with the entire ensemble – with beautiful interplay at a very sensitive level – hardly the sonic onslaught you might expect – followed by the second album, "Epiphanies", which has the group breaking out into smaller ensembles – with even more sonic and musical variety.

Company (Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, & Others)Trios By Company ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), 1983. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $29.99
A really special instance of the creative collaboration that marked the legacy of the Company ensembles on the UK scene – a recording of various trio formations from a lineup of ten different improvising musicians – each showing an amazing ear for mixing sound and spontaneity, group performance and individual contributions – all served up by a great lineup that includes Joelle Leandre on bass, JD Parran on basset horn, Hugh Davies on electronics, Peter Brotzmann on tenor and baritone, Ernst Reyseger on cello and electric cello, Evan Parker on tenor and soprano, John Corbett on trumpet, Vinko Globkar on trombone and flute, Jamie Muir on percussion, and Derek Bailey on guitars! The material was all recorded during the Company Music Week in 1983 – and the set features five different trio groupings, plus one "trio minus one", and one "trio trio". LP, Vinyl record album

Music Improvisation CompanyMusic Improvisation Company 1969/1970 ... LP
Incus/Honest Jons (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold (reissue)... $32.99
Incredible work from a group that forever changed the face of British jazz – and which really found a way for improvised music to exist in a space that's all its own! The "company" is really a quartet – with Derek Bailey on guitar, Evan Parker on soprano sax, Hugh Davies on organ and electronics, and Jamie Muir on percussion – working in a way that's definitely got plenty of free jazz elements, but which also occasionally resonates with experiments in electro-acoustic sound from the 60s – yet at a level that's much warmer and personal, which is the sensibility that important improvisers like this can really bring to the music! Parker also plays a bit of amplified auto harp, which is great – and titles include "In The Victim's Absence", "Pointing", "Bedrest", "Untitled 3", "Untitled 4", and "Its Tongue Trapped To The Rock By A Limpet The Water Rat Succumbed To The Incoming Tide".
