From a review in the NYC Jazz Record, April 2020:
"On Re-Collect, [Bishop] leads his impressive pianoless Flex Quartet through six original compositions in what is a compelling, at times even thrilling, performance. The lengthy pieces take full advantage of a highly compatible quartet in which trumpeter Russ Johnson acts as a perfect foil to Bishop’s gruff, broad swatches of sound while bassist Jason Roebke and drummer Frank Rosaly diligently undergird the horns with intense, time-less structures. [...] The playing is strong throughout, without a weak link, Bishop in the lead but, unquestionably, Johnson’s strong blowing and the tight rhythm section contributing to the album’s success."
Jeb Bishop is the most inspiring player to come out of the North Side improvising scene associated with Ken Vandermark. In recent years, the trombonist has blossomed into a major voice on his instrument, with a big, punchy tone, an instinctive sense of melody and the wisdom not to run on too long. A veteran of multiple international tours, he's a frequent collaborator with like minded players here and abroad. Chicago Sun Times, 2004.
