Playing for Friends on 5th Street catches free-improv guitar legend Derek Bailey in an intimate concert for about 40 friends and fans on December 29, 2001.
Bailey is at his best during the 51-minute set, which includes his telling a story about working in a guitar shop in the 1960s (accompanying himself as he does in his much sought-after "chats") and a few moments of traditional playing on the vintage Epiphone hollow-body he bought on Staten Island.
