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 indispensible to artists like Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Woody Shaw, and Art Pepper. With more than 20 albums under his own name, he is equally distinguished as a leader. Cables has absorbed a huge variety of sounds and styles and incorporated them into his playing. 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). Cables' uniquely virtuosic interpretations of classic compositions are full of "tough love" for the source material, and his writing is "more profound, more eloquent than ever" (JazzTimes).

For his Stanford Jazz Festival performance, George Cables will reunite with two players with whom he shares a special musical history: bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Eddie Marshall.
