Love, Gloom, Cash, Love is the final album by American jazz pianist Herbie Nichols, featuring performances recorded and released on the Bethlehem label in 1957.[1]


The Allmusic review by Brian Beatty awarded the album 4½ stars and stated: "These performances may be less animated than Nichols' earlier sides as a leader, but that's not to suggest the pianist's writing or playing had become pedestrian or predictable... Nichols' complex melodies and solos shine that much brighter".[2]
