Biography

George Andrew Cables, 14 November 1944, New York City, New York, USA. After studying piano at Mannes College, Cables’ reputation as a flawless accompanist was quickly established. Playing with Art Blakey in 1969, Sonny Rollins in the same year, Joe Henderson between 1969 and 1971, and Freddie Hubbard between 1971 and 1976, he was always in demand from touring band leaders. Through the late 70s and 80s he played and recorded with Dexter Gordon (1976 to 1978), George Benson (1981), Bebop And Beyond (1984), and was Art Pepper’s last pianist (1979 to 1982). Cable’s best work has been produced in the role of sideman, although his 1987 tribute to George Gershwin (By George) is particularly affecting. In October 2007 Cables underwent a liver and kidney transplant.
