Bob Bralove - keyboard
Henry Kaiser - acoustic and electric guitar, bass, and electronic percussion
Chris Muir - electric guitar and modular synthesizer
"POSITIVELY SPACE MUSIC is a 2-CD album that explores many aspects of SPACE MUSIC.
Historically speaking, many different sub-idioms and approaches to music have been nominated as SPACE MUSIC. A few of these landmarks would include: Sun Ra, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Gyorgi Ligeti, The Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, The Forbidden Planet...
Hamadryad - Live In France 2006
Hinds, Killick / Henry Kaiser - Xenosynchronicity II (artist released professional CD-R)
"Four years. Four years since their last duo album. Henry Kaiser and Killick Hinds have each been quite prolific with their individual musical output during this interval. Filled with tons of inspiration to share, the stars aligned for them to work together again; they agreed they should not make "Nikola Tesla High School 2." (Though they both love "1.") So the Etch-A-Sketch was shaken blank, and a process developed to transport them through uncharted multiverses, somewhere out beyond The Deep Unreal...
Ikonen, Kari - Oceanophonic
I see a lot of concerts and a lot of concerts by musicians I know and also a lot by musicians I don't. One of the best concerts I saw in 2009 (and certainly the best concert I saw by a group I was completely unfamiliar with) was the Finnish group...
Kaamos - Deeds and Talks
The only release by this very obscure Finnish progressive rock band, originally released on the even more obscure M&T label, whose album was originally released in 1977. Vocals, guitar, keyboards and synths, bass and drums. You can compare this to...
Kaasinen, Sari and Mari - Can We Have Christmas Now?
A Christmas album that won't make you want to hurl. The foundation of the incredible vocal force that is Vrttin, the Kaasinen sisters lovingly present their favorite Finnish x-mas songs, arranged by JPP's Timo Alakotila, and performed with an all-star ...
Kaczynski, Charles - Lumiere de la Nuit
Great, rare Canadian album with Kaczynski playing all the instruments and sounding like a band project throught the miracle of multitracking, that I never thought would be reissued on CD, but here it is! "Charles Kaczynski guested on the first Conventu...
Kafka - Kafka
Offering this release out gives me a bit of a thrill because I had the very great pleasure of seeing this dual guitar/bass/drums outfit open for Guapo at Les Tritonales last July. I didn't know anything about them at the time, but I was quite impressed...
Kaipa - Discovering Kaipa 3 x CD box set
I guess you should consider this the progrock equivalent of those "original album classics" boxes. I don't know if that's good or bad. I think it just is...

Kaipa - In the Wake of Evolution
This is happy, upbeat prog for happy people!
Kaipa - Inget Nytt Under Solen (expanded / remastered)
The second album by the band best known for being guitarist Roine Stolt's first professional band. Kaipa were probably the premier symphonic rock group in Sweden in the 70s.
This was originally released in 1976 by Decca and it has not been in...
Kaipa - Kaipa (expanded / remastered)

Kaipa - Notes From The Past (Mega Blowout Sale)
"Wonderful new reunion album from Hans Lundin and Roine Stolt that recaptures the flavor of their first 3 albums from the mid-70s. If you first instinct is to ask yourself what the difference is between this release and a Flower Kings disc you should know that all the material was written by Hans Lundin. Roine is the guitarist but it's pretty much Lundin's show here. Drums are handled by Morgan Agren (ex-Zappa) and Jonas Reingold of Flower Kings plays all basses. This is pure Kaipa in execution - loads...
Kaipa - Vittjar
"The kings and queens of Scandinavian folklore are back! Thundering in on a north wind from the ancient forests and Scandinavian skies full of fire and mystery. Once lost inside ice and snowcapped mountains and forbidden islands, where you cannot...
Svart SRE 148CD
Kairon; IRSE! - Ujubasajuba
Krazily named new progressive / psychedelic Finnish band, who knocked it out of the ballpark on their third album Ruination and while this, their second, isn't in the same league, a lot of the same attributes that made Ruination great are here as well.
This is a more straight-forwardly shoe-gaze album, but it has more complexity than most of what I know from that genre and some great tunes and mesmerizing ideas. Conditionally highly recommended, but start with Ruination first!...
Kaiser / Kimura / O'Rourke / Oswald - Acoustics
One hour of acoustic, completely free, ''open'' improvisations; duets, trios, & quartets on acoustic guitars, violin, and alto saxophone.
Kaiser, Henry - Domo Arigato Derek-Sensei!
Assembled by Henry Kaiser as his tribute to Derek Bailey - one of Henry's big influences as a player - this very nice digipack consists of about 65% unreleased material and about 35% released-but-often-rare material. It has a very amusing cover which i...
Kaiser, Henry - Everything Forever
Henry Kaiser is a great guitarist and a versatile guitarist. He can and does do a lot of things, including really crazy, out stuff. But he also has done some really lovely meditative/trance stuff, of which this is the latest. Nice as can be!...
Kaiser, Henry - Garden Of Memory: Live Electric Guitar Solos 5 x CD box set
In addition to his work as a 'free improviser', Henry is a great and versatile guitarist and for the last 15 years or so, he has been developing a watery, echo-y solo guitar ouevre, which is really lovely yet very rigorous (in a good way) stuff...

Nels Cline - guitar
Henry Kaiser - guitar
Jim Thomas - guitar
Weasel Walter - drums

One of HK's great improvised rock titles, imo. "Buy With Confidence - Certified 100% Jazz Free!" At it's most cosmic, it reaches "Agitation Free / Dark Star level psychedelia!
"With a cover and title that reflects Ornette’s classic Free Jazz album, we have here a free rock album that is certified 100% jazz-free.
Old pals Cline and Kaiser have been playing toge
Kaiser, Henry - Lemon Fish Tweezer
This is the definitive Henry Kaiser solo guitar disc! We gave Henry carte blanche to make what he felt represented his best work, & the result is this 75' disc of incredible guitarwork. Some tracks are from (long out of print) lps, many tracks are prev...
Kaiser, Henry - Nazca Lines: Solo Acoustic Guitar
"This album consists of 22 freely improvised solos on 18 different acoustic guitars. In the past 5 years, Henry Kaiser released seven solo discs that consist of long (70-80 minute) electric guitar solos. In this latest release, he explores the short solo guitar format, with solos wherein the mind of the listener can hold the beginning, middle, and end of the musical stories in one mentation.
In the tradition of Derek Bailey’s 1975 classic album IMPROVISATION on the Italian CRAMPS label, these...
Kaiser, Henry - Nostalgia For Infinity - Solo Antarctic Guitar
"I have a great love for the feedback tape delay system that Terry Riley developed and named in the 1960’s: The Time Lag Accumulator. It is an amazingly expressive creative tool, and just one of the myriad of wonders that exploded from The San Francisco Tape Music Center. When Robert Fripp and Brian Eno later co-opted this twin Revox tape recorder technology and approach from Riley in 1973 - Fripp dubbed it Frippertronics - that co-opting kinda spoiled this simple long delay with feedback approach to...
Kaiser, Henry - Requia And Other Improvisations For Guitar Solo
State of the art solo, no overdubs, guitar solos for a wide number of different electric and acoustic guitars, all of which have their own voice and Henry allows that voice to speak clearly on each track. And a wonderful homage by Henry to John Fahey's...

Kobe Dupree - synth, turntable
Henry Kaiser - guitar, fretless bass
Jack Thompson - fretted bass, turntable

Henry taught Jack to SCUBA dive years ago and they have had many travel and SCUBA adventures together. In recent years, as..
Kaiser, Henry - The Starbreak Splatterlight
Henry Kaiser - guitar & bass
Lukas Ligeti - drums
Paul Plimley - piano & guitar
Weasel Walter - drums
Henry's not kidding. Much to my surprise, well-regarded pianist Paul Plimley can really rip it on electric guitar, something that has never been documented on record before!
"This is among the most unusual and personally best-loved of my recordings from the 21st century. If you asked me to describe what it sounds like, I might say that it sounds like a Decals' era Magic Band
Kaiser, Henry - Where Endless Meets Disappearing: Solo Guitar 2009
This has Henry on a number of guitars, most of them electric and showcasing his considerable skills and his unique voice on solo guitar. A number of the tracks I found extra-attractive, being variants of the echo-y/watery/spacy music that he used on...

Danielle DeGruttola - cello
Henry Kaiser - guitar
Anantha R. Krishnan - mridangam & kanjira
Michael Manring - electric bass
Wu Na - guqin
"This is perhaps the most unusual improvisation album that Henry Kaiser has produced. The 2-CD is something in the tradition of INVITE THE SPIRIT, in that it fuses other world music traditions with American free improvisation.
In this case we have a truly unlikely mixture of ancient Chinese music..

“This is a wild large ensemble, free jazz album with two ecstatic electric guitars out in-front.

Kaiser, Henry / Bob Bralove - Ultraviolet Licorice (Mega Blowout Sale)
Henry Kaiser is one of the great improvising guitarists. His music has grown and changed over the 4 decades he's been making music, but whose work has always had big roots in the 60s psychedelic rock of his home in the San Francisco area.
Bob Bralove is a keyboardist who was the keyboardist for the Grateful Dead during their final 8 years of existence. So, obviously, they have a lot to musically say to each other here.
Henry told me that they worked with live improvising of guitar and piano...
Kaiser, Henry / Damon Smith - Relations (professionally made CD-R)
Henry Kaiser: 1998 Montelone Radio Flyer 7-string guitar
Damon Smith: 1934 Romanian or German flat back double bass
"My third or fourth improv concert was with Henry. We started playing a ton after that and slowly started developing this acoustic duo music. It must have started settling in around 1998 because I remember it being strongly connected to this 7 string guitar. When planning his first trip to Houston to play I asked him very nicely if he could please bring that guitar. He did, and..
Kaiser, Henry / Damon Smith / Weasel Walter-Plane Crash 2

Kaiser, Henry / Scott Amendola - Leaps
Nice album of guitar / drum duets from two fine players. Henry gets to have fun being himself, pulling wild noises out of the guitar, and he and Scott communicate together nicely!

Kaiser, Henry / Wadada Leo Smith / Tania Chen / William Winant - Ocean Of Storms
Tania Chen - piano

Willian Winant - percussion
"Ocean Of Storms is an exciting album of improvised music by four of the most celebrated titans of contemporary sonic innovation. The five pieces on the album take their titles from geographic features of Earth’s Moon. Incorporating elements of modern composition, the music is both otherworldly and grounded in the American roots musics of jazz and blues.
The recording grew out of the...

Kaiser, Kaiser / Steve Parker / Damon Smith / Chris Cogburn - Nearly Extinct
"In the mid to late 1960s, American Free Jazz travelled across the Atlantic to become free improvisation. British musicians John Stevens, Derek Bailey, and Evan Parker, and Hanover’s Gunter Christmann were among the first to move away from American jazz-based methods towards a more inclusive but non-idiomatic method of improvising. Such diverse countries as Belgium, the Netherlands, Japan and South Africa also added ideas and concepts to the global concept of free improvisation before finally traveling...
Kalacakra - Crawling To Lhasa
