George Cables-piano, David Williams-bass, Lewis Nash-drums
An engaging jazz pianist and positive spirit, George Cables is one of the most sought-after musicians of his era, known for his fluid rich harmonic designs, broad range of dynamics, and adept post-bop stylings. First emerging in New York in the 1960s, he established his reputation playing with a bevy of forward-thinking luminaries including Woody Shaw, Bobby Hutcherson, and Joe Henderson. Following his move to the Bay Area in the ’70s, he continued to find himself in-demand, working often with Freddie Hubbard, Dexter Gordon, and Art Pepper.
“People who don’t listen to jazz or (are unfamiliar with) the evolution of jazz, may not know who George is. I’ve played with a lot of piano players—Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea—and George is right there. His touch and vocabulary always tell me it’s him. He (has) always sounded like himself.” –Lenny White, bassist
Primarily known for his work with others, he has issued his own highly regarded dates including 1979’s Cables’ Vision, 1985’s Phantom of the City, and 2008’s My Muse. Comfortable in a variety of settings, Cables is a member of the all-star group the Cookers and continues to lead his own trio, which released I’m All Smiles 2019 .
