Jeff Kaiser: Ganz Andere

“Why can’t we all just get along,” those now famous words spoken by Rodney King have bounced everywhere from Jay Leno’s lips to a tee shirt I saw on a Tibetan monk. But sampling has been around since well before Snoop Doggy. There was The Beatles’ White Album, and “I certainly was drunk at the time” from Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon. It’s in our blood. Ever since the pilgrims borrowed Native American’s corn dogs and decided to play football on Thanksgiving we’ve been sampling. But generally it is a side ‘effect’ of the music, a window dressing, and not the window. Here, the electronics and sampling are the portal and multi-instrumentalist Vinny Golia is the curtain. The closest thing I can relate to Kaiser work is Brian Eno/David Byrne’s My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts. Golia plays sideman to the electronics for most of the recording. His patience and support in this new role for him, ties the seemingly disparate sounds together. Kaiser, the brains behind the disc, directs the flow playing a Miles-like trumpet Kaiser like Golia, never steps into the riotous stream of electronics, sampled children and rat talk. Maybe we really all don’t want to get along, playing a lyrical refrain to the world’s nihilism.
