Reviews:


Driff Records was formed in 2012 by pianist Pandelis Karayorgis and reeds/electronics player Jorrit Dijkstra, two European musicians who settled in Boston, Massachusetts, in order for each to have a stable release platform for their respective projects. Karayorgis appears on the three albums under consideration here. Each release highlights a particular aspect of his efforts to sustain a creative life in a town not particularly known for its friendliness to improvised music.

Water Lilies is a digital-only document of a totally improvised encounter between visiting Danish drummer Kresten Osgood, McBride, Karayorgis and two horn players, Bishop and Forbes Graham. Working first as a trio, they lock into a brisk exploration of sonic extremes; when the horns arrive, they induce a shift towards a more dialogic melodic music.
