SYLVIE COURVOISIER/MARY HALVORSON DUO

Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.” —Mae West

In their eagerly awaited follow-up album to 2017’s Crop Circles, Sylvie Courvoisier and Mary Halvorson have recorded a new duet album to be released on Pyroclastic Records in October 2021, and will support it on a European tour in January and February of 2022. Intricate compositions, telepathic interplay, riotous and ferocious fun: acoustic piano and electric guitar duets have rarely provoked such pleasure.
"The affinity heard between the two is something that can't be taught... This meeting of two of the brightest minds on the edgier side of jazz today produces music that’s astonishing both in its fluency and ceaseless ingenuity."

—S. Victor Aaron, Something Else
The duo released the album Crop Circles in 2017 via Relative Pitch Records. Dusted and All About Jazz gave the disc glowing reviews, as did several European publications. And DownBeat set up its four-star review of the album by describing Courvoisier and Halvorson as “two of New York’s most distinctive improvisers,” going on to praise the music’s “deft, interactive intimacy” and the duo’s way of “coming together and then drifting apart with unspoken grace... always serving the cumulative sound but remaining very much themselves.”
