Pandelis Karayorgis Quintet: Afterimage

Read "Afterimage" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

Boston, MA area pianist, composer Pandelis Karayorgis brandishes his magic at a Chicago venue with some of the Windy City's finest improvisers.

A radical traditionalist with a penchant for the acute angles and strident tonalities of advanced post-bop, Karayorgis' recent exploits ...
