Beginning; The End
In the continual flow
of life’s spiral,
we see ourselves
reflected in the light
of cosmic ether:
glowing, pure, immortal.
Though our mortal bodies
die, there is no death.
Passing between worlds
with the light speed
of soul ~ ‘tis then we are whole.
Mortal vessel, unable
to transcend, must be
left behind, will never mend.
The beginning, is always
found at the end.

Ariadne’s Notes: It was a great pleasure to have the well known pianist and composer Frank Kimbrough call into the World Poetry Café , CFRO 100.5 FM at 1:40 pm PST. Co-host Neall Ryon waxed poetic in speaking to him.
“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 introduced 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”
