"Jez Nelson presents a gig from New York electric guitarist Mary Halvorson. 
Playing original compositions that feature angular grooves and dissonant melodies, 
the trio obtains excitingly edgy and dynamic improvisations. Joining Mary on stage 
are bassist John Hebert and Ches Smith on drums.
Mary has been active on the New York jazz scene since 2002. She plays regularly with 
the infamous avant-garde reedsman and composer Anthony Braxton and released her debut 
recording as leader in 2008. The album was proclaimed 'an auspicious debut' by 
Downbeat and "full of tension, excitement and awkward pleasure, and very much of its 
moment." by The New York Times."
