For the first concert COMPANY was Maarten van Regteren Altena, Tristan Honsinger, Evan Parker and myself. On the following day the same four musicains taped the music from which this first COMPANY record was chosen. Altogether we recorded a number of duo pieces, all the possible trio combinations, and also a quartet. The music on this record represents the four trio combinations and is the result of each trio taping approximately twenty-five minutes music out of which one 10 to 12 minute piece was in each case chosen for the record.
Usually in making a selection from recorded group improvisation the choice of the material to be used is based on a communally agreed verdict as to which music is 'the best' of that available. In this case, with the permission of the other players, I was the sole arbiter and made the four selections without consulting the other three as to their preferences. In my choice I was guided by one specific criterion; I chose that part of the music by each trio which seemed to me to be most characteristic of improvisation and which best revealed the qualities which can be found only im improvisation. (Music and text by Mr.Bailey [rip provided by Nick & posted by me...])
