Barry Guy Interviewed

From Bagatellen:

Barry Guy seems to be one of the most convincing figures in a long row of contemporary innovators – those few whose discoveries possess everlasting value. That possibly answers why his music is so much more than merely enjoyable. Listening to Barry Guy’s recordings often pushes one’s mind into speculations about general ways of music, its historical perspective and the future. Being a diverse improviser, a performer of exceptional technique, an accomplished composer and a big band leader, this artist has amazed me by the scope of his interests and variety of accomplishments ever since I was introduced to his music.
