DUALS
Jeb Bishop – trombone
Pandelis Karayorgis – piano
Damon Smith – bass
Triple CD set.
Each disc contains one duo session between the three musicians: trombone-bass, piano-bass and piano-trombone. Recorded over the course of Jeb’s last year of residency in Boston and soon after Damon had moved away, these recordings capture a glimpse of the city’s creative music scene at a particularly active time.

THE HASAAN, HOPE & MONK PROJECT
Pandelis Karayorgis – piano
Nate McBride – bass
Luther Gray – drums
Featuring four compositions from Hasaan Ibn Ali’s recently re-discovered 1965 recording Metaphysics (Omnivore, 2021), three classics by Elmo Hope, and six Thelonious Monk favorites.

WATER LILIES
Forbes Graham – trumpet
Jeb Bishop – trombone
Pandelis Karayorgis – piano
Nate McBride – bass
Kresten Osgood – drums
This live recording from May 2022 captures the reunion of Copenhagen-based drummer Kresten Osgood with four long time Boston-based musical companions during Kresten’s U.S. tour at the time. All five musicians here share a long history of working together and have developed a common language. The first four tracks are trio, followed by a longer piece from the entire group.
