George Andrew Cables is a jazz pianist, born November 14, 1944 in New York City. He has played with Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Art Pepper, and others. He is most noted for his collaborations and as a sideman. When Cables was going to school in New York City, he used to walk the streets at night, taking in the cosmopolitan sights and sounds, mentally recording his encounters with "so many different kinds of people." In his musical career as well, Cables has prowled sidestreets and main thoroughfares in relative anonymity, absorbing countless influences into his personal style.
