Yes, this is for real. Experimental guitar wizard Derek Bailey performs a program of his favorite standards in his own inimitable and enigmatic style.
Inspired and energized by a very special vintage acoustic arch-top guitar, this intriguing solo recording is a one-of-a-kind chance to hear the master pioneer of non-idiomatic free improvisation perform compositions from the American Songbook. A textbook of originality for years to come, this is one of the most vexing and enjoyable CDs Derek has ever made. You have got to hear it to believe it. Insightful liner notes by Marc Ribot vainly attempts to explain the proceedings.
