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.

Released November 2022:


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.


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.

This is a digital release only.
