Guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson, who critics have called “NYC’s least-predictable improviser” and “the most forward-thinking guitarist working right now,” performs with four long-time collaborators: Jonathan Finlayson, trumpet; Jon Irabagon, alto saxophone; John Hébert, bass; & Ches Smith, drums at the Outpost on the evening of Thursday, December 19 at 7:30pm. That afternoon, Ms. Halvorson will give a workshop/lec-dem in which she will focus on her approach to improvisation, specifically within the context of solo guitar playing, which she has been working on over the past year. She will also discuss the quintet compositions which they will be performing that evening, including their structure and their approach to writing and ensemble playing.
