Passport to Satori is a collaborative effort from U.K. freeform super dude Alex Neilson (tight meat duo, Directing Hand, MV&EE, Will Oldham and many more as I'm sure you'll know) and Nmperign trumpeter Greg Kelley released on the consistently excellent GoldenLab records. This is a full on manic attack of freeform drums and mind-boggling trumpet abuse. Never have I heard such wild trumpet playing and for this Greg Kelley should be applauded (applause!!). I assume that there's some stealth use of effects pedals to enhance what is already an inventive use of the brass but its almost impossible to believe the array of sounds he manages to conjure from the humble trumpet. Crazy crazy crazy......Alex provides a perfectly infinite landscape of bells, broken cymbals, woodblocks and toms that make Greg's job ultimately easier and more enjoyable whilst contributing greatly to the overall feel. Again, its not easy to put this record into words that could do it justice so you'll have to make the time to check it out for yourself. I guess this record covers everything from free jazz and concrete to no wave whilst giving the middle finger to the whole notion of improv sub-genres. An awesome collaboration and an excellent release from Golden Lab. Also worth mentioning that they look like street tough muthafuckers on the cover. Badass!!!
