Vede invece protagonista Mary Halvorson la puntata di settembre della serie The Roulette Tapes, Untangled Strings. La fenomenale chitarrista e compositrice sarà al Roulette in settimana per presentare due suoi nuovissimi lavori, Amaryllis e Belladonna, trasmessi in diretta streaming e poi attesi anche in versione discografica nel 2022.

Guitarist, composer and MacArthur Fellow Mary Halvorson has been called “NYC’s least-predictable improviser” (Howard Mandel, City Arts), “the most forward-thinking guitarist working right now” (Lars Gotrich, NPR.org) and “one of today’s most formidable bandleaders” (Francis Davis, Village Voice). Ms. Halvorson is best known for her trio, quintet, and octet; the latter is featured on her 2016 album Away With You. Her latest project as a bandleader is a sextet called Code Girl, for which she wrote music and lyrics, with Amirtha Kidambi (voice), Maria Grand (saxophone and voice), Adam O’Farrill (trumpet), Michael Formanek (bass) & Tomas Fujiwara (drums). Collaborative projects include the longstanding collective ensemble Thumbscrew (also with Formanek and Fujiwara), and a chamber-jazz duo with violist Jessica Pavone. Ms. Halvorson has also performed in bands led by Anthony Braxton, Tim Berne, Taylor Ho Bynum, Trevor Dunn, Tomas Fujiwara, Ingrid Laubrock, Jason Moran, Joe Morris, Tom Rainey, Tomeka Reid, Marc Ribot, Ches Smith and John Zorn, among others.
