Biography

Pianist/composer Frank Kimbrough has been active on New York’s jazz scene for twenty-five years. He was a founding member and composer-in-residence of the Jazz Composers Collective (1992 - 2005). Frank has released over a dozen recordings as a leader, and has appeared on nearly forty more as a sideman. He has toured extensively, with appearances in the US, Canada, Brazil, England, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and China. His work has been cited by the Downbeat Critics Poll each year since 2001, and he has appeared on Marian McPartland’s Piano Jazz and NPR’s All Things Considered. Frank’s work has received funding from Meet the Composer, The National Endowment for the Arts and Chamber Music America’s Doris Duke Jazz Ensembles Project. Along with Ben Allison, he co-leads the Collective’s Herbie Nichols Project. As a sideman, he has been a member of the Grammy-winning Maria Schneider Orchestra since 1993, and has also toured and recorded with saxophonist Dewey Redman, and with fellow JCC composers-in-residence Ben Allison, Ted Nash, Michael Blake, and Ron Horton, among others. Play, his latest CD featuring drummer Paul Motian and bassist Masa Kamaguchi, was released in May 2006 on Palmetto.
