Private recordings of incredible historical importance (practically the holy grail to fans of free improvisation), Pieces for Guitar presents the earliest known solo recordings of guitar innovator Derek Bailey. Dating from 1966 (possibly 1965) these pieces were recorded for personal study during a transitional period and include some of the only instances of him performing his own written compositions!! Under the influence of the music of Anton Webern, Bailey began working through a variety of techniques as he formalized his unique approach to music in general and the guitar in particular. These fascinating recordings offer us a rare glimpse into the secret world of one of the most original and respected guitarists in the world.
