Karayorgis, Pandelis Quintet: Afterimage (Driff Records)

Label: Driff Records    
Released in: USA    

"Afterimage is an outgrowth of the 2013 release Circuitous."It is a live recording made in April 2014 at Mike Reed's Constellation in Chicago, during a brief tour. This group thrives on the tension between arranged and spontaneous, post-bop and avant-garde.

A new set of original compositions was submitted to the group's collective energy and was given shape during these performances. "Simmer," "Haunt ," and "Afterimage" are all through-arranged pieces with cued transitions, while the remaining seven pieces simply consist of a "head" that serves as a springboard to improvisation within an open format that the group arranges differently each time. Three of the pieces are tributes; "Velocipede" to Steve Lacy, "Sway" to Lennie Tristano, and "Veil" to Billy Strayhorn's beautiful ballad writing (the only piece among these to feature chord changes)."-Driff
