Royalty of Brooklyn's avant-garde jazz scene--slaytastic guitarist Mary Halvorson and octopi-armed drummer Tomas Fujiwara--have melded their extraordinary talents together before in myriad groups, but it is in Thumbscrew where the radical twosome may have reached their apex. A collaborative, composition-based fire-breathing trio rounded out by imposing bassist colossus Michael Formanek, Halvorson, serving as de facto leader here, wields and shoots off salvo after salvo from her punk-jazzified six-string like a woman possessed. On its eponymous debut Thumbscrew (Cuneiform), the barrage of riffs are both epic and melodic, the low end beefy and the percussion massive. Expect nothing less than magic from these three avant purveyors.
