Add to Calendar 2014-08-06 8:00 pm 2014-08-06 George Cables Trio + Fly at Stanford Jazz Festival at Dinkelspiel Auditortium (Stanford University) Anyone attending this double-bill is in for a real treat! Legendary keyboardist George Cables is well established as a leader with over 30 albums to his credit. But he’s also known as “everyone’s favorite sideman” having worked with Sonny Rollins, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Dexter Gordon and Bobby Hutcherson to name just a few. Cables headlines the date with a classic piano trio, featuring superstar drummer Peter Erskine. The collective trio known as Fly features Mark Turner, Larry Grenadier and Jeff Ballard, three of the jazz world’s most forward-thinking musicians. Fly plays outside the box, a post-modern application of the piano-less trio format. Each member brings considerable skills to the table, having honed their craft with artists like Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, John Scofield, Brad Mehldau, Kurt Rosenwinkel and others. (Please note, George Cables will perform first, at 8pm.)
