Five Dollar Ferrari – “F$F” – [Prom Night]

Brooklyn label Prom Night introduces collaboration between Brad Henkel on trumpet and Dustin Carlson on guitar (Jeff Kaiser does mastering), with the first composed by Henkel and the second by Carlson. Spacious tone poem extensions of overlapping synchronicity go through various phases of primordial evolution. The interaction is absolutely amelodic yet finds resolve in the most unlikely places. As these two organic entities meld seamlessly into one another, like the joining of solitary cells, human life is born with the power of language to contemplate its place in a seemingly empty world. Soon the acknowledgement of existence births man’s first tool, fire, and with it the inevitable inception of destruction. The second piece brings echoes of breezy steel string chimes disturbed by spouts of gusting wind on a still night. The luminous twilight casts an ominous glow over the lonely street trumpeteer blowing his bugle ballad. Our raconteur reenters to disrupt and dismantle, this time with startling??spontaneity and unexpected entropy. Sparse, contemplative and challenging, this is jazz stretched to the point of breaking.
