Label: Weight of Wax    
Released in: Great Britain    

"John Butcher and Derek Bailey first played in duo around 1989, at London's Red Rose Club. Butcher then took part in the 1990 & 1992 (London) and 1996 (Vancouver) Company weeks.

Various other playing situations materialised in the 90s, ranging from Saturday afternoons at the Oasis Wine Bar in Hackney, to a quartet with Robyn Schulkowsky in France, and a trio with Joelle Leandre at Tonic in New York in 2000.A comparatively long lived grouping was with tuba player Oren Marshall - which released Trio Playing on Incus.

Bailey and Butcher's duet from a concert at London's Vortex in 2000 was released on Vortices and Angels. In the same year they were joined by Gino Robair for a studio session, which has now been released for the first time, on Weight of Wax."-Weight of Wax
