Uplifting and enervating...why, when the list of 'great guitarists' gets banded about, is Sharrock not up there? His work doesn't need re-evaluating just elevating! He is truly wonderful and his music should be treasured...I posted this for my friend Stewart who is about to become a Sharrock convert, I suspect.

Mary Halvorson is a genius composer and guitarist who has developed her own musical language, and with Code Girl she has incorporated poetry into that language. Incredible compositions and lyricism (each track is a different kind of poem). Halvorson's playing is as great as usual, and all the other members of the band sound great. Robert Wyatt's singing in particular works extremely well in the tracks he's featured. Highly, highly recommend. rat
So happy to see a new album from this band. I've long been a fan of Mazurek and Parker's work in Tortoise, on top of the CUQ... Anyhow, if you're curious about contemporary jazz, this is a terrific place to start.
