    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of May 20–22

    Guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson performs songs from her just-released Nonesuch debut albums, Amaryllis and Belladonna, with the musicians who perform with her on the albums—Mivos Quartet, Patricia Brennan (vibraphone), Nick Dunston (bass), Tomas Fujiwara (drums), Jacob Garchik (trombone), and Adam O’Farrill (trumpet)—at Jimmy's Jazz and Blues Club in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, tonight and at Festival International Musique Actuelle Victoriaville in Quebec on Saturday.

    "Halvorson’s current double release, Amaryllis and Belladonna, shows how far this single-minded original has come, and affords a glimpse of how far she may go," the Guardian says, in its five-star Jazz Album of the Month review. "Both sessions confirm how years of jaggedly lyrical solo and ensemble improvising and a quirkily subversive affection for mainstream music have now nurtured a composer of unpredictable but warmly expressive character … These are new landmarks in Halvorson’s already inimitable discography."
