Mary Halvorson Trio
This was just the music I needed right now! Mary Halvorson Trio: "Dragon's Head" (Firehouse 12, 2008). Mary Halvorson (guitar), John Hebert (bass) and Ches Smith (drums) play some mean trio jazz. I see it's filed under Avant Garde (Halvorson worked with Anthony Braxton), but there are no reasons to let that scare you from picking up this album (or "clicking on this album", as they might say these days). Some of the tracks even make me think of John McLaughlin arund "Extrapolation" time, but that might be all my fault. I'll get som more Halvorson albums, no doubt about that. And the trio will be at this summer's Moldejazz too!
