”Over the course of nearly 20 years and approximately that many recordings, Karayorgis has established himself as one of the singular, and significant, pianists of his generation.” Art Lange

“ ... by this stage, Karayorgis has developed a powerful piano language of his own and this is its definitive statement to date.” The Penguin Guide To Jazz Recordings, (8th Edition) in reference to solo piano CD “Seventeen Pieces” (2004).
