DEREK BAILEY/EVAN PARKER:
Derek Bailey: electric and acoustic guitars, voice
Evan Parker: soprano and tenor saxophones
This long-awaited release contains their entire 70+ minute

This is their first duo release since 1985, and their first
release by an American label. An important and historic
(The concert is heard in its entirety. The index numbers
have been added for convenience only.)
