Born:

Bailey was born in Sheffield, England. A third generation musician, he began playing the guitar at the age of ten, going on to study with John Duarte among others.

Bailey was also part of a Sheffield based trio founded in 1963 with Tony Oxley and Gavin Bryars called 'Joseph Holbrooke' (named after the composer, whose work they never actually played)

MC3: Sounds of the City

Read "Sounds of the City" reviewed by Jerome Wilson


MC3, a British trio led by guitarist Matt Clark, explores variations on the tradition of British free improvisation which have a more user-friendly form than normally heard in this music. That is largely due to Clark himself, who mostly plays twangy chords and melodic riffs instead of the disruptive stabs and skronks favored by pioneering British ...

Dine Doneff: In/Out

Read "In/Out" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski


Composer and bassist Dine Doneff's In/Out is a one-man show and a type of improvisation that seems mystical. Dubbed as a soundscape theatre for double bass and soundscapes, it is full-blown, free-flowing, and intensely narrative, an arc that is established by Doneff's interaction with samples and pre-recorded materials all performed live. Doneff is a ...

Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini

Read "Roberto Zorzi: esplorazione senza confini" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


Il percorso musicale del chitarrista Roberto Zorzi è così ricco ed eclettico che è impossibile includerlo in un particolare genere musicale. L'iniziale amore per visionari artisti rock come Robert Fripp e Brian Eno s'è arricchito nel tempo di approcci, tanto liberi quanto anticonvenzionali, di Derek Bailey e altri esponenti dell'avanguardia inglese degli anni settanta. La ricerca ...

Jack Cooper & Jeff Tobias: Tributaries

Read "Tributaries" reviewed by Gareth Thompson


The Greek philosopher Heraclitus claimed that “No one ever steps in the same river twice," as everything is in flux and constantly changing. By the same logic we might say that no jazz musician ever plays the same piece twice. Now consider the album Tributaries, a river-inspired work created by Jack Cooper (guitar) and Jeff Tobias ...

Sergio Armaroli, l'improvvisazione oltre la musica

Read "Sergio Armaroli, l'improvvisazione oltre la musica" reviewed by Neri Pollastri


Sergio Armaroli è un artista singolare, assai difficile non solo da etichettare, ma anche da definire: compositore e percussionista che ha come strumenti principali vibrafono e marimba, attivo tanto nella contemporanea, quanto nel jazz, sempre comunque in situazioni in cui l'improvvisazione la fa da padrona, è però anche pittore, poeta, saggista. Un artista plurale, molto prolifico, ...
