Boomkat Product Review:
Derek Bailey finds a fine foil in Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista on this killer set, pairing the polymetric improvisation of their ‘original ‘Cyro’  LP with a bonus disc of previously unreleased material
The collaborative performance of ’Cyro’ was recorded by Bill Laswell in New York, while Bailey was living there in the winter of 1982. The pair brilliantly keep each other on their toes in duelling syncopations and right-angled rhythmic turns of phrase, Baptista seemingly armed to the teeth with every kind of Brazilian drum and percussive instrument in his arsenal, switching between them as Bailey flays his fingertips.
The bonus disc of improvisations are of a similarly beguiling quality, with baptista wielding what sounds like bullroarers, sheet metal and reticulated conga lines over and around Bailey’s jerking strings. Tremendous results for all involved.
