George Cables Trio

Pianist George Cables has been one of the most sought-after sidemen in jazz for more than four decades. His versatile playing and ability to bring out the best in any group's sound have made him indispensable to artists like Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Woody Shaw and Art Pepper.

With more than twenty albums under his own name, Cables is equally distinguished as a leader. From harmonically adventurous post-bop to gospel-tinged blues, Cables “mines jazz's heavier elements, fusing Bud Powell's feeling, Fats Waller's juke joint geniality and Art Tatum's quick wit into his own transformative lyricism” (All About Jazz). For this evening's performance, Cables reunites with Larry Grenadier (bass) and Eddie Marshall (drums).
