|Live at Café’ Metropol, Los Angeles July 14, 2006.
What happens when you multiply limitlessness by infinity? You absolutely do not know. Which is why it’s such a great idea to toss Henry Kaiser and Andrea Centazzo into the same reaction chamber.
As one of the West Coast’s premier freakers for some three decades, Kaiser has made a career of sticking his guitar in unpredictable places.
Dude’s also an experimental-film-&-lit buff and an ace scuba diver, and grows radioactive coral on Neptune.
Meanwhile Centazzo has crashed regularly out of his percussion orbit and into visual territory via art video/photography and film scoring, while hanging with some of the same musical crowd with whom Kaiser has hobnobbed. From total abstraction to Asian metallophonics, he’ll fling sticks with passionate sensitivity.
The 28-year-delayed reunion of abstract guitar boiler Henry Kaiser and percussionist Andrea Centazzo at Los Angeles own Café Metropol was as happy and sparky as you’d expect.
Centazzo rattled with surprising groove-consciousness on metallophone and his huge assortment of gongs, drums and cymbal trees, while Kaiser hurled himself into dynamic surges of blues, rock and unearthly emanations, answering a request for some Syd Barrett with a wink & nod to Pink Floyd’s “Interstellar Overdrive.”
A duo made in heaven.
