Henry Kaiser is an icon in avant-garde guitarist circles, maybe best known to wider audiences for work with trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith’s “Yo Miles!” project reimagining Miles Davis’ 1970s electric albums. Kaiser’s work ranges from funky rock and ornate, baroque writing to imaginative, live looping solo performances.
He performs selections from his 2013 album Requia and other Improvisations for Guitar Solo, a tribute to great free-improvisers like Sun Ra and Derek Bailey. He’ll also take requests from the audience.
