“Dragon's Head (No. 9)” (by Mary Halvorson Trio)
To mark the release of her new recording, Dragon's Head, on Firehouse 12, Mary Halvorson brought her trio down to the WFMU studios to throw down a fire breathing live set for The Long Rally. The band features Ches Smith on drums (Xiu Xiu, Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog), John Hebert on bass (Uri Caine, the late Andrew Hill, his own band, Byzantine Monkey), and Mary Halvorson on guitar (People, Anthony Braxton, duo with Jessica Pavone). They tore through four of Mary's craggy tunes (three songs from the album plus a ballad called, "No. 11") and left all in attendence speechless. -Scott McDowell via Beware of the Blog
