About George Cables Trio

“. . . a finely-calibrated touch and harmonic savoir faire.” —JazzTimes

The recordings George Cables made with jazz giants Sonny Rollins, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Art Pepper, Bobby Hutcherson, Woody Shaw, and Freddie Hubbard are all on every jazz critic’s must-have list. They’re classics, pure and simple. But George is much more than a contributor to the history of jazz; he is jazz history. His playing changed the way pianists approach hard bop and post-bop, and he continues to influence the young generation now. But it’s you whose life is going to be changed by taking in George’s all-inclusive mastery of jazz piano: You won’t believe what you’re hearing. The fire, creativity, facility, power, technique, melodicism — there is nothing more exciting than a George Cables concert.
