    This is from a "celebrity" edition of the popular BBC TV quiz, Mastermind. I was very surprised to see free-improv supremo, Derek Bailey, being comedian, Stewart Lee's specialist subject. He does very well indeed. I hope you can view this in your part of the world.

    Wow! I can't imagine Bailey is generally known in the UK, but how well known is he amongst British jazz fans?

    He is well known to jazz and alternate-music fans, and he also presented a TV series on improvisation in different cultures across the world. I was a fan back in the 70s.

    This has given me the chance again to share my Homage to Derek Bailey, whether you want it or not :

    Yup, that's the Japanese-made d"Aquisto, which I wish I still had. Still, one of my students is doing good things with it.

    Thanks for that - I was awol at the time & had no idea it existed, downloading from youtube as I post.

    I scored 3 on first viewing but my score's improved since.

    I saw DB a couple of times (solo & with Barry Guy) & there was a bit too much pulling a heavy metal chain over an es175 for me.

    +1 for your video, hope you're back in the groove.

    I have the 3 cd set The Sign of 4 with Pat Metheny, Gregg Bendian and Paul Wertico. I haven't listen to any of it in 20 years. I think I'll give it another listen sometime soon. If I remember correctly, it's free form improvising all the way through and can be a little challenging to follow.
