On October 2nd and 3rd 2014, Cornelia Street Cafe will host a record release celebration for the prolific guitarist/ composer Mary Halvorson’s latest album, Reverse Blue, which will be released October 7th on Relative Pitch Records. This new project features Chris Speed on tenor saxophone and clarinet, Eivind Opsvik on bass, and Tomas Fuijwara on drums. Reverse Blue offers Halvorson a different sonic palette than her critically acclaimed Trio/Quintet/Septet configurations – bringing new musical personalities and timbres to her work, albeit within a classic quartet instrumentation. The band originally formed for a one-off concert at the Blue Note in New York City, part of Search and Restore’s “Spontaneous Constructions”, a series designed to generate new collaborations between musicians who hadn’t previously played together. The four musicians immediately felt a strong shared connection, and Halvorson began compose a new book of music specifically for this group. The other three also contributed at least one new composition each, adding to the strong collective nature of the new ensemble.  Corneliastreetcafe.com
