Hump Day News Applauds Mary Halvorson’s Maximalism
Hump Day News writes that Mary Halvorson‘s Amaryllis is “an album full of winks, nods, bobs, weaves, and roundhouses. The instruments supplied by this sextet playing six songs is standard contemporary jazz, but the instrumentation makes chock-a-block, maximalist use of the instruments. There’s a symphony squirreled away somewhere in that song suite.” The site has “Night Shift,” one of the album’s highlights, which features “vibraphone-forward gyrations.”
Listen here, and get Amaryllis and its companion album Belladonna spinning now.
