On Friday, February 13th at 8:30 p.m., Brooklyn-based guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson and her trio will perform at Roulette in New York. 

The group, which also features bassist John Hebert and drummer Ches Smith, will be premiering brand new music in addition to performing selections from its acclaimed 2008 debut, Dragon’s Head (Firehouse 12 Records). 

The record, Ms. Halvorson’s first at the helm of her own ensemble, is featured on best-of-the-year lists in a long list of publications, including AllAboutJazz-New York, JazzTimes, the New York Times, The Wire and the Village Voice.

The success of Dragon’s Head 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 with her trio debut, Dragon’s Head…light years ahead of her peers, she is the most impressive guitarist of her generation. The future of jazz guitar starts here.”
