HENRY KAISER'S Peter And The Wolf (1998) -Unreleased

Improvised in front of a live audience at Beanbender's in Berkeley, March 22, 1998. This unreleased performance is guitarist Henry Kaiser's avant variation of the well-known Prokofiev piece, featuring a few high profile friends, violinist Darol Anger and pianist Sarah Cahill among them. At 40 minutes, it's a weird & wired treat, and the excellent sound puts you at a front row table. Recommended for those who like their Prokofiev without rules. Listen to the entire unreleased performance, below.
