“Frank Kimbrough [was] a pianist of unerring taste and touch, a composer drawn to flowing ethereality, and an improviser steeped in the art of epiphany.” – Nate Chinen, WBGO
“ [Kimbrough] was remarkably at ease in any style of jazz, turning on a dime from blocky and dissonant clusters to bebop workouts to ethereal subtleties. In all cases, his impeccable touch was balanced by a strong undercurrent of rhythm.” – Michael J. West, JazzTimes
