John Cratchley I've listened to a lot of Mary Halvorson's music from her early days with Anthony Braxton and she is a highly individualistic player with a sound all her own. She manipulates the guitar in such an unexpected fashion and is so original that,at times,she can leave you breathless with her invention.Crump seems to be the perfect foil for her: grounded but equally idiosyncratic...check out 'Super 8',their first album too.
If you like intimate,quick-fire improvisation with a quirky edge (and I do!) then this will be for you.
This music is poignant but also makes me smile a lot!

about

Intakt CD 249

From the very first notes they played together, Secret Keeper, the innovative duo of "NYC's least-predictable improviser" (City Arts) Mary Halvorson and Grammy-nominated Stephan Crump had a magical connection. Their debut album, Super Eight, arrived in March of 2013. Now with Emerge, their second release, the duo reveals a new level of chemistry.

Washington journalist Will Layman says: "'Emerge', the duo's second release, is the fulfillment of a promise made in their early sessions. The music is at once tender and tough, intuitive and open, ready to let you in on its dazzling intimacy."

Stephan Crump made himself a name with his Rosetta Trio and as the bass player of the Vijay Iyer Trio. He surprised a few years ago with a duo recording on Intakt on which he collaborated with saxophonist Steve Lehman. Mary Halvorson is one of the busiest musicians around. She plays with Anthony Braxton, Ingrid Laubrock and Marc Ribot to name just a few.
