Recording Info

Recorded at Airwave, Chicago, IL, November 29, 1997

Produced by: Jeb Bishop
Executive Producer: Bruno Johnson
Engineered by: John McCortney

Although Bishop’s unit has been heard for some time as the pulsing heart of Chicago’s Vandermark 5, Jeb Bishop Trio marks the trombonist’s album debut as a leader. Eschewing avant garde trickery, Bishop applies his robust tone to the business of no nonsense jazz improvisation. Strong melodies supply the impetus, but the group takes its time, delving and probing, working through the options. Kent Kessler on bass and drummer Tim Mulvenna respond appreciatively to Bishop’s striking and authoritative voice, stretching out for an excursion that effectively tests the format’s potential, with neither frills nor fuss.

- The Wire, Summer 1999
