Description

Mary Halvorson is one of New York’s most in-demand guitarists. Though most often labeled a jazz player, collaborating with artists including Anthony Braxton, Jason Moran, and Marc Ribot, among many others, her style stretches and transcends more often than it resides within more familiar confines. “When all her influences click into place, the result is like little else,” says Pitchfork of her catalog; her most recent bandleading proves no exception to that rule.

2018’s Code Girl, Halvorson’s first project for which she has written both lyrics and music, presents an adroit sextet of artists capable of executing Halvorson’s rock-adjacent ideas. Halvorson is joined at Duke Performances by Amirtha Kidambi (vocals), María Grand (saxophone, vocals), Adam O’Farrill (trumpet), Michael Formanek (bass), and Tomas Fujiwara (drums).
