DEREK BAILEY / DENNIS PALMER / BOB STAGNER

Live At Lamar’s March 1999

(Shaking Ray) Used CD $10.00

“Free improvisation that goes in some surprising directions,” declares Gino Robair about this brief collaboration by the UK guitar legend and the Shaking Ray Levis released in 2002. “Prog elements implied!” Jazzword elaborates: “distorted oscillations,” “distended reverb washes,” “stuttering rhythm guitar chording,” “Bailey … using delay to transform himself into a flat-picking guitar army as Palmer lays on the organ chords,” “spinning massed drone,” “atmospheric rocket launching suggestions and burbling space tones,” “buzzing feedback, complementing similar wavering aural data from the keys, and completing the rhythmic thump.”
