For you fleas too,
The night must be long,
It must be lonely.

serendipity

The other day, while I was listening to the radio,* this popped out.

Derek Bailey (guitar) & Tony Oxley (percussion, electronics)
“Sheffield Phantoms,” The Advocate, Tzadik, 2007 (rec. 1975)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Rarely do you hear something that’s both this “out” and this intimate.

Playing music is not really susceptible to theory much. Circumstances affect it so much.

***

Personally, I`ve found that the kind of thing that I like is going into somebody else’s area and not playing their music but doing whatever I do in their area.

***

I like duos with percussionists. I like the songs that percussionists sing.

You can’t always wait for a composer to write the music you want to play.
