"...Kimbrough and co. offer up some engaging arrangements, imaginative solos and an overall feel that takes us beyond the standards/no standards straightjacket....the band recalls mid-'60s Miles....this isn't the first Nichols tribute in recent years, but it may be the best... 4 stars (out of 5)"

"The Herbie Nichols Project revisits the rarely recorded works of pianist Herbie Nichols, who died in obscurity in 1963. Pianist Frank Kimbrough leads a fine quintet through ten of Nichols' works, including the richly voiced "Wildflower," featuring tenor saxophonist Ted Nash and trumpeter Ron Horton, then adds a second version as a piano solo. Surprisingly, one of Nichols' best-known (but still relatively obscure) pieces, "House Party Starting," is omitted."
