about

Tromba is the name for many forms of trance music in Madagascar, a rich musical and cultural source for Henry Kaiser.. Kaiser's latest solo album continues his explorations of trance solo guitar inspired by Tromba. Also represented are a long form contemporary classical composition (in tribute to Giacinto Scelsi) and fuzz-rock trance guitar jam. This is the state-of-the-art in exploratory experimental guitar, while still retaining what Kaiser calls "melody and grounding in what folks can actually stand to listen to".

Check out the blazing "Echoes for Sonny Sharrock" (track 7) featuring trumpet legend Wadada Leo Smith.
