O’s Notes: The Frank Kimbrough Quartet includes saxophonist Steve Wilson, Jay Anderson on bass and drummer Lewis Nash. Frank graces the piano and wrote 7 of the 10 selections. The music starts to gel on “Blue Smoke” as the band seems more cohesive. “November” and “Ode” are a more relaxing ballads using dynamics and intensity to draw the listener in. Our favorite is the blues based “Kudzu”
