HENRY KAISER "I Forget" (The $100 Guitar Project, 2013)

A nifty project spearheaded by Nick Didkovsky and Chuck O'Meara, when they purchased a no-name electric guitar online for $100. They came up with the brainstorm of getting a bunch of their cool buddies (64 players on 69 tracks) to take the guitar, compose and record something with it, so they could compile this 2CD collection of off-the-beaten-path creativity. Everyone who came on board had a week with the guitar before they sent it on to the next player. As a result, the axe traveled "all over the USA, including Hawaii, and to western Europe." The list of players is a who's who in the improv/avant community, including the likes of Nels Cline, Rhys Chatham, Mike Keneally, Fred Frith, Elliott Sharp and too many others to mention here. But, since 100% of the artist's royalties (and some record company money) are being donated to CARE, a world hunger organization, you're only getting a taste here... the very cool contribution from Henry Kaiser, entitled, "I Forget." Find The $100 Guitar Project at Amazon (see the complete track list, here) and hear Henry Kaiser on a $100 guitar, below.
