George Cables has been playing sweetly for many years. He was Art Pepper’s favorite piano player and backed him for many years. Same with Frank Morgan. He’s played with everyone and each session has been lifted to a higher level because of him. He has also made many, many albums of his own, writing beautiful songs and bringing together great groups of musicians.
He and the always amazing Victor Lewis have worked together a lot. His touch and his exploration have introduced me to emotions that words can’t pin down. His soft-spoken perseverance and excellence is an inspiration.
