It is hard to listen to a posthumous released recording without reflecting on what the world has lost in their absence. Pianist and composer Frank Kimbrough was an individual who was beloved by all who knew him. A true musician's musician and mentor to many, Kimbrough's legacy lives on in his work and the lives that he touched. His passing in 2020 has left a hole in the heart of the jazz world. // Kimbrough's Ancestors is a recording that encompasses much of the leader's personality, depth, and approach to music making. Assembling a drummer-less trio with cornetist Kirk Knuffke and bassist Masa Kamaguchi, Kimbrough brought his spontaneity and introspection to the fore on a collection of original compositions and improvisations.
