Mary Halvorson - best place to start?

32 posts in this topic

Regarding 'looks' I mean, sure, I agree, but getting to know her as a human being/improviser trumps everything else...

As someone who knows her well has said - "she really doesn't know how great she is".

My limited experience in interacting with her is that she is humble and very kind.

Ghost Loop

Another vote for Ghost Loop on For Tune, the trio live in Poland. Great concert and recording.

don't get what's great about her sound...that sound whenever she uses a guitar, flipping the expression pedal around on a Line 6 echo. It's distracting.

I forgot about this post I made back in 2015 but I eventually met Mary (plus Sylvie Courvoisier) when they played to a handful of people at "The Owl" in Brooklyn back in September 2017. My partner & I sat at the very front & they both allowed me to take photographs during the performance. Also, it was a real buzz talking to both of them at the bar afterwards.

Totally no shit/pretension from either. They were lovely.

listening to Pierre Henry's Variations pour Une Porte et Un Soupir this morning. Now there's a squeaky door that's put to creative use!
