Kaiser, Henry - Domo Arigato Derek-Sensei!
Assembled by Henry Kaiser as his tribute to Derek Bailey - one of Henry's big influences as a player - this very nice digipack consists of about 65% unreleased material and about 35% released-but-often-rare material. It has a very amusing cover which is a homage to Derek's first solo album. There are solo tracks by Henry and also duo and trio tracks which include Kiku Day, Charles K. Noyes, Henry Kuntz, Toshinori Kondo, Andrea Centazzo, Damon Smith, Davey Williams, Larry Ochs, Greg Goodman, Mototeru Takagi, Motoharu Yoshizawa, John Oswald, Sang-Won Park and Derek himself. "Everything on this album is live free improvisation - there are no overdubs." Henry wanted as many people as possible to hear this, so he made this available at a real bargain price.
