descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Guitarist Mary Halvorson and violist Jessica Pavone's longstanding duo embraces a wide range of musical traditions which critics have noted their "level of interplay that borders on the clairvoyant." They've been likened to "an avant-garde Thelma and Louise, blazing a trail across the stylistic horizon like a 1966 Ford Thunderbird jerry-rigged from scraps of Eric Dolphy, Django Reinhardt, Appalachian gothic campfires, Charles Ives, and Hendrix-laced psychedelia." The group has performed at venues ranging from small cafés to major international festivals since 2002."-Thirsty Ear

"Two of the most exciting figures in New York's jazz and improvised-music community Chicago Reader "A challenging fusion of oblique art song, reflective chamber music and thorny free improv." -Time Out "An avant-garde Thelma and Louise, blazing a trail across the stylistic horizon like a 1966 Ford Thunderbird jerry-rigged from scraps of Eric Dolphy, Django Reinhardt, Appalachian gothic campfires, Charles Ives, and Hendrix-laced psyche- delia" -Village Voice "Pavone and Halvorson reach in and touch the brain, activating dreams and aggravations with their spare and insidious tunes"-Montreal Mirror Massive Promotion
