George Cables

 

continued

1979 was an important year for Cables. He left Gordon, recorded the first important album under his own name (Cables' Vision), and became the partner of another great saxophonist, Art Pepper. He continued to freelance and play with others, but he would often be found accompanying the amazing Pepper, whose playing at the time was immensely passionate and creative. Their collaboration is well documented by recordings, perhaps most notably by their 1982 duets that turned out to be Pepper's last recording sessions.

Over the past two decades Cables has played and recorded with a broad range of other musicians, including another veteran saxophonist, Frank Morgan, who is well known to Ann Arbor audiences, and he has released more than twenty albums under his own name. On rare occasions he does solo gigs, but so far as I know, he has recorded only one CD alone, volume 35 of the Maybeck Recital Hall Series. It is a lovely record, with a nice balance of ballads and faster tunes, and it provides a good advance view of his solo performance on Friday, February 10, at Kerrytown Concert House.
