Frank Kimbrough counts among a handful of New York-based pianists who have been refining and expanding the language of ensemble playing over the last few decades (this November he marks 35 years in New York and his sixtieth birthday). Declared a “a near-visionary whose piano-improvising, composing, and band-leading skills seek out the dark corners of untrod jazz terrain” by The New Yorker, Kimbrough is noted for his exquisite ensemble, trio and solo recordings as well as his duo work with Lee Konitz, Scott Robinson, Joe Locke and Paul Bley, his work as a sideman in Dewey Redman’s quartet, and his long-term involvement with the Jazz Composers Collective and the Maria Schneider Orchestra. On Solstice, acclaimed players and longtime musical companions, bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Jeff Hirshfield join Frank to explore the music of some of the jazz masters who have left a personal imprint on his life. The new album is now available in our Pirouet Label Shop and in stores worldwide on Friday. Pre-listen here.~Pirouet Records| 2016
Newvelle Records has just released Noah Preminger’s Some Other Time, a new ballad record featuring Ben Monder, John Patitucci, and Billy Hart!
We are a vinyl only, membership driven label that launched in March with Frank Kimbrough’s Meantime. In April we released Jack DeJohnette’s first solo piano record, Return. We are extremely proud to present this latest recording of Noah’s, backed by a world-class band.
The eclectic array of songs on Some Other Time includes choice standards (“My Little Brown Book,” “A Ghost of A Chance”), Noah’s originals, some Bob Dylan and a piece by the turn-of-the-century Paraguayan composer, Agustín Barrios Mangore.
We are looking forward to hearing what people think of this one.
