Nate Chinen reviews the Mary Halvorson Trio & Quintet’s Sunday night gig at New York’s Joe’s Pub in a post on his new blog, The Gig.

“Halvorson specializes in strangely tuneful provocations, and that was as true on Sunday as it is throughout Dragon’s Head, her excellent debut, released last year on Firehouse 12,” Chinen writes.

He adds, “I caught the first public appearance of this [new] group at Roulette in February, and can happily attest that it has come a long way since. The music felt appealingly roomy, with enough looseness to allow for solo engagement.”
