Carrack Free Improv Tuesday: Jeb Bishop Going Away Party 

When: Tue., Dec. 8, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: free



The existence of the Triangle's tightly wound improvisational community hinges on the actions of a few impresarios, or musicians who so desire such a scene in their own backyard that they're willing to put in the time, money and energy to recruit shows. Following the departure of Polyorchard leader David Menestres in May, the area will lose its second such organizational force in less than a year come January. Trombonist and Raleigh native Jeb Bishop, who returned to the area in 2012 after making a name for himself in Chicago's free jazz community, will move to Boston early next year. During his time here, he's been active both as player and promoter, putting on concerts seemingly as often as he participated in them. His exit will certainly leave a gap. Before that, though, he plays two farewell shows in Durham, including this latest installation of the engaging and open-ended series Carrack F.I.T. Look for Bishop in a most appropriate context—exploring surprising sounds and shapes in the company of those who revel in the same endeavor. 8 p.m., donation, 111 W. Parrish St., Durham, 919-294-8605,
