2010 CD reissue.
Recorded in 1977, Drops is considered one of the best performances of Derek Bailey in the 1970s, acclaimed for it's explosive clarity, energy and overflowing imagination. Behind all this is an operative praxis that we have tried to use in producing records of so-called improvised music. This praxis involves organizing the improvisational process by channeling it into more or less open structures. The kaleidoscopic quality of Drops was created by this restraint of performing limits, i.e. The choice of instrumental timbres, dynamics and metronome speeds to suit each piece. - Andrea Centazzo.
