New School Jazz Presents: George Cables at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola [Freddie Redd CANCELED]

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 7:30 pm to 11:00 pm

Dizzy's Club Coca Cola 10 Columbus Cir #5 Manhattan, NY 10019

Regrettably, pianist Freddie Redd will not be able to perform on Wed. 10/2. 

Instead, the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music will present the inimitable pianist George CablesEqually skilled as a leader or as a sideman, George Cables helped to define modern mainstream jazz piano of the 1980s and '90s.

When he was 18 and at Mannes College, he formed the Jazz Samaritans with Steve Grossman and Billy Cobham. Cables gained recognition during his stints with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Sonny Rollins (both in 1969), Joe Henderson (1969-1971), and Freddie Hubbard (1971-1976). He was with Dexter Gordon (1976-1978) during the tenor's successful return to the United States, and became known as Art Pepper's favorite pianist (1979-1982). In addition to his occasional work with Bebop and Beyond (starting in 1984), Cables appeared in a countless number of situations through the years, and has recorded frequently as a leader, most notably for Contemporary (including the 1979 classic Cables Vision), Concord, and SteepleChase.

Tonight he'll be joined by a multigenerational band, including two New School Jazz students, Uri Zelig (drums) and Joanna Sternberg (bass). Also featuring saxophonist Stacy Dillard
