Henry Kaiser, born in Oakland, California, on 19 September 1952, is a widely-recorded experimental guitarist and frequent collaborator with other musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area. His grandfather was the industrialist Henry J. Kaiser.

He is considered a member of the "first generation" of American free improvisors, reflecting influences from European free players including, among others, Derek Bailey and Evan Parker. In 1978, Kaiser founded the Metalanguage Records label with Larry Ochs (Rova Saxophone Quartet) and Greg Goodman.

  • Boring! LOL, some people have no heart for music, perhaps?!?
  • A little boring. It sounds like a guy wanking off. Not my cup of tea.
  • Only 4 shouts?!
  • Had the chance to jam with Henry on a remote island in the pacific just about 9 years ago. Changed my life, and prior his music meant the world to me since HS. Henry, great guy, real.
  • I had the pleasure of seeing Henry Kaiser open for The Bears a million years ago, and have been addicted ever since. He is one of those artists that ties together my odd collection ( Henry -> Fred Frith -> The Residents or Henry -> Adrian or Henry -> John Fahey.. etc etc etc..) Brilliant Guitarist.
