To celebrate the late Frank Kimbrough, whose untimely passing on December 30, 2020 added another unnecessary layer of grief on a challenging year, we have reached out to some of his long time friends and collaborators asking them to share a track that in their hearts immediately conjured up memories of Frank. It could be one of his compositions, a track featuring him as a leader or sideman, or something by a different musician that nevertheless was inextricably associated with Frank Kimbrough.

Here's the first installment of this "Friends' Mixtape." The playlist includes the name of the selector followed by the details concerning the tune.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
