Pianist, composer, and educator Frank Kimbrough was a revered presence on the New York jazz scene for nearly 35 years prior to his untimely death in December 2020. This show celebrates his life and work. Due out August 12, 2022 with LPs following, a new collection Frank Kimbrough 2003-2006 brings together 2003's Lullabluebye, featuring long-time collaborators bassist Ben Allison and drummer Matt Wilson (drums); and the 2005 follow-up, Play, boasting a new trio with the then relatively unknown bassist Masa Kamaguchi alongside legendary drummer Paul Motian. Both have been newly mixed and remastered. As well as featuring music from that release there are selections from across his career and from artists who influenced him.
