Tom Albach, Producer and Founder of Nimbus Records, Dies at 95

Tom Albach, a true jazz patron, has died.  He began his Nimbus records specifically to record and document pianist, composer and bandleader Horace Tapscott.  Albach’s efforts sustained Tapscott (1934-1999), and alerted the world outside of Los Angeles to his music.  Albach was 95 and succumbed to the effects of pneumonia at the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque.
