"Halvorson is one of a growing number of women players in improvised music, in an arena that used to associate women mostly as vocalists. … in Miami, she expects to present a program 'leaning toward more experimental forms of jazz, avant-garde jazz, and a lot of rock music influences.'"
— WLRN's Tracy Fields, in Artburst Miami     Full article...

Critics call her a singular talent, the most impressive guitarist of her generation. Halvorson has been steadily reshaping the sound of jazz guitar with her elastic, wholly unique style. One of improvised music's most-in-demand guitarists, in the past year alone she has played over 130 gigs worldwide – in 17 states besides her many NYC appearances. Internationally in the past year she has played major festivals in Italy, Austria, Poland, Belgium, Finland, Switzerland, France, Spain, Canada, Spain, Germany and Netherlands. Her US appearances have included the Newport Jazz Festival and prestigious museum venues such as the Walker Arts Center, Art Institute of Chicago and the Whiney Museum. At least half her gigs are in New York City at venues ranging from galleries to major clubs such as the Village Vanguard, The Jazz Gallery and The Jazz Standard. Mary has been active in New York since 2002. She has performed with Anthony Braxton, Marc Ribot, Jessica Pavone, Myra Melford, Taylor Ho Bynum and Trevor Dunn, among others. In addition to her solo work and sessions with other musicians Halvorson is also a bandleader of several groups.

Halvorson "is just as likely to pick out intricate, harmonically and melodically complex lines of stunning beauty as she is to unleash a violent spray of atonal, harshly distorted six-string noise. — Richard Bienstock, Rolling Stone     Full article...
