Herbie Nichols Project music CDs For its third release, the Herbie Nichols Project moves to Palmetto Records and adds trombonist Wycliffe Gordon to what was previously a sextet. Only three tracks feature the full band, however.

Herbie Nichols Project songs 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.
