AMN Picks of the Week

Mary Halvorson with Tom Rainey and Anti-House ...

Here is where I post, at a frequency of about once a week, a list of the new music that has caught my attention that week. All of the releases listed below I’ve heard for the first time this week and come recommended.

This is the second “Picks” for this week. So much music has been coming out recently, another posting seemed justified.  And, yes, the new Mary Halvorson release is really good.
