Jazz Pianist Frank Kimbrough Dead At 64

“Casual of gesture but deeply focused in demeanor, [he] had an understated style that could nonetheless hold the spotlight in trio settings, or fit slyly into [Maria] Schneider’s 18-piece big band. In many ways, his playing reflected the Romantic, floating manner of his first jazz influence, Bill Evans. But his off-kilter style as both a player and a composer also called back to two of his more rugged bebop-era influences: Herbie Nichols and Thelonious Monk.” – The New York Times
