Mary Halvorson Quartet (USA)

Mary Halvorson: guitar
Miles Okazaki: guitar
Drew Gress: bass
Tomas Fujiwara: drums

The final installment presents the last 10 unrecorded compositions from “Masada Book Two” and the variety, drama and lyricism are just as strong as in the very first volume. Mary Halvorson, a longtime Masada fan and one of the most acclaimed guitarists of
her generation, leads a dynamic quartet featuring Miles Okazaki, Drew Gress and Tomas Fujiwara. The music is intense, wild and
incredibly varied—a beautiful and fitting conclusion to this historic Masada series—hailed as one of Zorn’s best! Mary Halvorson
Quartet will perform selected Bagatelles written by John Zorn in 2015, never recorded before and performed only as a part of Zorn’s epic Marathons. This very special set is exclusive to The Stone in Europe Series on a very special occasion – composer’s 65th birthday. Let’s celebrate it together! (Pressetext)
