Thin Air, the third recording from the duo of guitarist Mary Halvorson and violist Jessica Pavone, is out today on Thirsty Ear Recordings’ The Blue Series, curated by Matthew Shipp.

AllAboutJazz.com’s Troy Collins writes, “Sharing vocal duties, they sing oblique cadences in harmonious polyphony, yielding a hauntingly poignant tonality. As longstanding accomplices, each musician’s turn of phrase, sudden pause and change in pitch reveals a level of interplay that borders on the clairvoyant. Conceived by artists who operate outside labels, Thin Air is a record, in the immortal words of Duke Ellington, simply ‘beyond category.”

The official CD release party is tomorrow night, March 25th, at Barbès in Brooklyn, and the duo will tour the Northeast U.S. in mid-April.  

Halvorson and Pavone will also perform at the Skirl Records party at Brooklyn’s Bell House on Saturday, April 11th.
