Frank Kimbrough

Pianist/composer Frank Kimbrough has been active on the New York jazz scene for 25 years. He is currently a Palmetto recording artist, having previously recorded as a leader for OmniTone, Soul Note, Igmod, and Mapleshade. Frank was a founding member and composer-in-residence of the Jazz Composers Collective (1992 - 2005). During the Collective's existence he played in nearly twenty of its groups, and his relationship with the musicians associated with the JCC is ongoing. He is otherwise in demand as a sideman, evidenced by recent recordings and tours with the Maria Schneider Orchestra, trumpeter Dave Ballou, and with vocalists Kendra Shank and Katie Bull. He was a member of the legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman’s quartet from summer '05 until Redman's passing in Sept. '06. Frank’s playing has been recognized by his inclusion in the Downbeat Critics Poll each year since 2001, and his recordings are often included in jazz critics' year's-end top-ten lists.
