Frank Kimbrough, piano; Masa Kamaguchi, double-bass; Kirk Knuffke, cornet
Frank Kimbrough has long been a fixture on the New York scene, though his accent still rings of his native North Carolina, as does his blue-hued phrasing on the piano. He’s a deep-soul player steeped in the art of forebears from Herbie Nichols and Andrew Hill to Paul Motian and Paul Bley. A member of the Grammy-winning Maria Schneider Orchestra and professor of jazz piano at the Juilliard School, Frank has made a string of poetic albums, with the recent Solstice his fourteenth as a leader – and his best yet. He has played some of the most memorable Sound It Out concerts ever, and Frank returns with kindred-spirit bassist Masa Kamaguchi and ace cornetist Kirk Knuffke in tow.
