Cornelia Street Café Hosts Artists' Salon & Mary Halvorson Trio, 8/5

On August 5th, the Cornelia Street Café (29 Cornelia St.) hosts the Artist' Salon at 6PM and the Mary Halvorson Trio at 8:30PM. Cover for the latter set is $10. For more information, please call 212-989-9319 or visit

The Artists' Salon is a monthly opportunity for artists associated with the cafe--from every genre and every generation (past, present, and future)-- to gather informally, schmooze, re-invent the world, and hoist a glass. The glorious curators are present for artists to buttonhole them to find out what's cooking. Artists can also introduce themselves to other toilers in the vineyard, invent projects and discover collaborators. All are welcome. Robin, Angelo, and Tom host.

The Mary Halvorson Trio includes Mary Halvorson on guitar, John Hebert on bass, and Ches Smith on drums. Guitarist/composer Mary Halvorson has been active in New York since 2002, following jazz studies at Wesleyan University and the New School. In addition to her own bands, The Mary Halvorson Trio and Quintet, she co-leads a chamber music duo with violist Jessica Pavone and the avant-rock band, People, with drummer Kevin Shea.

A veteran of the ensembles of esteemed saxophonist/composer Anthony Braxton, she has also performed with groups led by Tim Berne, Taylor Ho Bynum, Trevor Dunn, Tomas Fujiwara, Curtis Hasselbring, Tony Malaby, Myra Melford, Nicole Mitchell, Jason Moran, Marc Ribot, Matana Roberts, Elliott Sharp, John Tchicai and Matthew Welch among many others.

In 2008, the success of her trio's debut, Dragon's Head (Firehouse 12 Records), led critics to call Ms. Halvorson "probably the most original jazz guitarist to emerge this decade" (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader) and "the freshest, busiest, most critically acclaimed guitar- slinger out of downtown Manhattan/Brooklyn right now" (Howard Mandel, Jazz Beyond Jazz).
