Pianist/composer Frank Kimbrough has been active on New York’s 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 is a founding member and composer-in-residence of the Jazz Composers Collective (est. 1992), and has participated in nearly two dozen different groups associated with that organization. He is also otherwise in demand as a sideman, currently appearing with the Maria Schneider Orchestra and with saxophonist Dewey Redman’s quartet, among others. Frank’s playing has been recognized by his inclusion in the Downbeat Critics Poll each year since 2001.

Frank's new CD, released in May 2006, is Play (Palmetto), with Masa Kamaguchi on bass and Paul Motian on drums. It features seven of Kimbrough's original compositions, along with two by Motian. In keeping with Frank's desire to make music in the most organic way possible, the recording was made with the musicians playing in the same room, without headphones, in a five-hour session with no rehearsals prior to the recording date.
