CASTELLO DI BORGHESE VINEYARD

George Andrew Cables is a jazz pianist, born November 14, 1944 in New York City.
Cables was classically trained as a youth, and when he started at the “Fame”-worthy New York High School of Performing Arts, he admittedly “didn’t know anything about jazz.” But he was soon smitten with the potential for freedom of expression he heard in jazz. The young Cables was impressed by such keyboardists as Herbie Hancock and Chick Corea, but, as he points out, “I never really listened to pianists when I was coming up.
Cables attended Mannes College of Music for two years, and by 1964 he was playing in a band called The Jazz Samaritans which included such rising stars as Billy Cobham, Lenny White, and Clint Houston.
