Assisted by bassist John Heard and drummer Ralph Penland on four of the six tracks, pianist George Cables explores six very familiar George Gershwin compositions. The fact that he was able to come up with fresh statements on these warhorses (and still stay melodic) says a great deal about Cables's inventiveness. ~ Scott Yanow
