New York Times Jazz Critics Name The Mary Halvorson Trio’s Dragon’s Head One Of The Year’s Best

The New York TimesNate Chinen and Ben Ratliff both included the Mary Halvorson Trio’s Dragon’s Head (Firehouse 12) on their lists of the year’s ten best recordings in the paper’s annual year-end round-up issue on Sunday.

In his feature article on Ms. Halvorson earlier in the year, Chinen called the disc “one of the more original recent statements by any jazz guitarist, let alone a female jazz guitarist.”

Ratliff adds, Dragon’s Head “has the power of a manifesto and the self-assurance that comes with smart composition and arrangement. Best of all: this is a group with its own compound personality.”
