Greg Kelley: If I Never Meet You In This Life, Let Me feel The Lack Trumpeter Greg Kelley is known for his modernistic excursions within various improvisational circles. With this solo outing, the artist does not rummage through anything that adheres to the straight, narrow or even free-jazz zones. This, my friends is an entirely different ball of wax. Here, Kelley explores the guts of his horn via multiphonics, upper register hissing sounds and otherworldly tonalities. Curiously strange yet undeniably fascinating, Kelley intermixes dark, ambient tones with mechanistic phrasings. At times, he conjures up effects such as water trickling through a pipe while also disconnecting his mic outputs from the amplifier or p.a. system. Hence, the artist embeds split tones with rhythmically charged electronic malfunctions and more. And while this release might not be everyone’s cup of tea, Kelley’s imaginative powers translate into a source of amazement.
