Covid-19 is dangerously impacting the social-economic category of musicians. No concerts, poor political and social consideration, uncertain earnings. As a consequence, an ever-growing number of musicians, especially those from the experimental area, are trying to promote their music on BandCamp in digital format only. It is increasingly difficult for me to follow and review this incredible flow of music. I therefore decided to open this section on my blog Neuguitars where I propose music in digital format that I consider particularly interesting and worthy of attention. I hope you like it. Let’s support musicians. They need it.
GUITARS ONE by ELLIOTT SHARP DAVEY WILLIAMS DEREK BAILEY, Ictus Records, 2020 on #neuguitars #blog
This collection presents tracks recorded in duo and trio with some of the premier guitarist on the improvised music scene since its inception in the late 70s. At that time I had the privilege of playing with one of the originators of this type of music, the unforgettable Derek Bailey. Since those days, many outstanding guitarists have followed in Derek’s footsteps, and I consider myself fortunate to have performed with some of the best.
