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.
