Kaiser, Henry - Hope You Like Our New Direction Hope You Like Our New Direction
Jazz Used - LP RECK 21 Reckless
1991 Original. Appears Unplayed. "Henry Kaiser Made Several Recordings Concentrating On Cover Versions Of Songs From Various Cultures, And Was Becoming Well Enough Known For Them That He Feared This Facet Of His Persona Was Beginning To Overshadow Others. Therefore, He Announced That This Oddly Titled Production Would Be His Last Venture Into Interpretations Of Other Folk's Music, Leaving Him Free To Return To The Arenas Of Improvisation And World Music. It's An Uneven Collection, Although The Highlights Are As Good As Anything Kaiser Ever Did. The Long "Traditional Medley," Featuring The Absolutely Gorgeous Playing Of Ngoc Lam On Danh Tranh (A Vietnamese Stringed Instrument), Wanders Evocatively From American Blues Through Vietnamese Folk Songs Before Surprisingly Ending With The Song "Cold Rain And Snow," A Staple Of The Grateful Dead Repertoire. Another Superb Number Finds The Hawaiian Singers Raymond & Elodea Kane (Along With Richard Thompson On Acoustic Guitar) Giving A Heartfelt And Stirring Performance Of An Old Hawaiian Gospel Song. Fred Marshall's Eerie "The Sandman," A Rousing Take On "California Dreamin'," And The Closing, Inspired Version Of Captain Beefheart's "Japan In A Dishpan" Are Other Standout Cuts. Interspersed Are A Bunch Of Lesser Efforts, Including A Dirge-Like Rendition Of "Rock On" And Some Testosterone-Laden Noodling With Future Guns N' Roses Member Buckethead. The Best Pieces Here Make This Album Well Worth Owning And, Despite Understanding Kaiser's Reluctance To Continue In This "New Direction," One Still Hopes For The Occasional Dalliance." - Brian Olewnick, All Music Guide... more details
 
Kaiser, Henry - It's A Wonderful Life It's A Wonderful Life
Pop Used - LP ML 124 Metalanguage
1984 Original. "Recorded Five Years After Outside Pleasure, This Solo Recording Reflects Both A Maturation In Conception On The Part Of Kaiser And An Overt Broadening Of Influences. At This Point, He No Longer Felt Obliged To Remain In Frith/Bailey Territory When Improvising (Although They Certainly Remained As Models), But Was Free To Import Aspects Of Various Forms He Loved, From Rock To Asian String Music And Beyond. It's Also A Much More Relaxed, Expansive Set With Less Of A Hermetic Air. The Title Improvisation (All Of The Pieces Are Freely Improvised) Traces An Imaginative Journey Through Rolling Glissandos, Echoed Shards Of Melody, And Frenetic Stutterings, All Bound By An Appealingly Nostalgic, Wistful Quality; It's An Early Highlight In Kaiser's Career. This Being The Mid-'80s, There's The Unfortunate Though Inevitable Experimentation With Drum Machines (On "Let's Drink 100% Healthy Milk And Study Hard!") That One Can, With Forbearance, Overlook. "The Book Of Gold" Showcases His Admiration Of Vietnamese String Music Wedded, As Would Often Be The Case In Ensuing Years, With American Acoustic Blues. The Final Track Begins Sounding Like Gamelan, Drifts Off Into Ethereal Violin-Like Strains, And Finally Settles Into A Luscious Pedal Steel Blues. Not Released On Disc As Of Now (Though Available In MP3 Format), It's A Wonderful Life May Be Quite Difficult To Locate, But Is One Of Kaiser's Very Best From Relatively Early In His Development.” – Brian Olewnick, All Music Guide.... more details
