Ian Brighton is a UK based guitarist who is known for playing improvised music between 1970's and 1990's, recently emerging from ‘retirement’ in 2013. He was one of a group of musicians who were known as the ‘second generation’ of British free improvisers. The first included, Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, John Stevens, Trevor Watts et al. His introduction to this music was via Derek Bailey and, although heavily influenced by Bailey, he managed to establish himself as an improviser in his own right and was soon playing alongside his peers at the various venues around London.

His contemporaries playing improvised music on the guitar included John Russell, David Toop and Pete Cusack: all different in their approach to the instrument. Initially reviewers likened his music to Baileys’, in terms of the shape of sounds, however later observed other aspects to his playing that were markedly different. It was these differences that other improvising musicians understood hence his involvement with many different groups over the years. His recorded work was sparse in comparison to other colleagues, however recently it has been acknowledged by some younger musicians that those recordings were, in part, seminal to their own development.
