The success of her acclaimed 2008 debut, Dragon’s
Head (Firehouse 12 Records), led critics to call Ms.
Halvorson “probably the most original jazz guitarist to emerge
this decade” (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader) and “the
freshest, busiest, most critically acclaimed guitar-slinger out
of downtown Manhattan/Brooklyn right now” (Howard Mandel,
Jazz Beyond Jazz).
“A singular talent,” adds AllAboutJazz.com’s Troy Collins,
“Brooklyn-based guitarist Mary Halvorson has come into her
own as a composer and improviser…light years ahead of her
peers, she is the most impressive guitarist of her generation.
The future of jazz guitar starts here.”
