George Andrew Cables was born November 14, 1944 in New York City.
His original training was in classical music at the famous performing arts high school ("Fame.")
He arrived not knowing anything about jazz, but discovered Miles and Trane and never looked back.
In addition to leading his own groups, Cables has performed and recorded with Joe Henderson, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Roy Haynes, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, Tony Williams, Bobby Hutcherson, Sarah Vaughn, and Dizzy Gillespie.
Cables also performed extensively with Art Pepper (who he called "Mr. Beautiful") playing on his final album, a duet with Cables called "Goin' Home."
