Brass Knuckle Sandwich - [excerpt from first piece]

The duo name that Marilyn Lerner (piano) and Nicole Rampersaud (trumpet) chose indicates that subtlety wasn't the primary goal here, and indeed, the set started with some undifferentiated busy-ness as the pair took some sonic jabs at each other. But as Lerner settled into a rolling cavalcade of notes things became a bit more choreographed, with one player often in attack mode and the other attempting to dodge and parry as much as possible — and in the end there even were some quieter, more reflective passages as well.
