musical celebration with pastime collaborator, percussionist/vocal
master Cyro Baptista.
Snaking through unknown musical landscapes, discovering paths and
creating new dialect along the way. These two masters have a connection
unparalleled in the avant-garde world and they celebrate it for
the last time at NYC’s legendary performance space Tonic.
21 years ago, Derek Bailey asked Cyro Baptista
to record an improvised duet session and soon after released CYRO
- one of Dereks’ first titles on his own independent Incus
record label. 3 years ago, Derek and Cyro had a reunion concert
at NYC’s Downtown club Tonic to celebrate their creative-musical
partnership. Derek gave Cyro his blessing to release this special
edition CD on Amulet records several months before his untimely
death last year.
