Live From The Jazz Lounge

Program #03 (November 4 at 6:00 p.m.)

George Cables - Maybeck Recital Hall Series, Vol. 35 (1994)

Locked right into the mainstream, the ever-reliable George Cables gets his shot at a solo recital in Vol. 35 of Concord's voluminous Maybeck series.

From the opening track ("Over the Rainbow") onward, Cables immediately settles into the prevailing Maybeck idiom, sporting a do-everything technique rooted in bop, with frequent Tatum flourishes, Evans-influenced voicings, and standards as the specialty of the house.
