about

If you had asked me 40 years ago if the music of Derek Bailey would inspire a generation of guitarists, I would have laughed in your face. There were few of us around then and it didn’t seem like our numbers were growing at any particular pace of note. Of course, I was dead wrong.
It is one thing to adopt the techniques and concepts of Bailey; it is quite another to make the resultant music your own. That is the challenge, and it takes extraordinary talent and skill to manage it. You are now holding the music of E. Jason Gibbs. He has clearly done just that. This is his music, his sound, his outlook.
The guitars are acoustic (even nylon string! Who does that?) and the music is unique. It is distinctly American, and pastoral, and in it you can hear strains of Fahey, and bits of Ives, and deconstructions of Robert Pete Williams and Tex Carman. But above it all, there is the spirit and soul of Gibbs. You will come to know him by this music, and consider him a friend.
I expect that this will be the first in a long series of his recordings. He is gifted and talented and this is simply beautiful guitar music. Try it.
-Owen Maercks, Oct. 2020

This is a record of unaccompanied guitar solos that was recorded at home over a period of days in the summer of 2020. The pieces are all improvisations on steel and nylon string guitars. They are presented as played with no overdubs or edits. Sometimes there are sounds outside of the music. Trucks, people on the street, my dog walking through the room or dreaming. - E. Jason Gibbs
