Album Review

George Cables draws from a variety of standards and jazz compositions by well-known composers for this 2000 trio date with bassist Jim Anderson and drummer Yoron Israel, the latter appearing for the first time with the pianist on a record date. Cables starts with a decidedly bop-flavored take of Duke Ellington's "Drop Me off in Harlem," romps through Billy Taylor's lively calypso "Capricious," and offers stunning interpretations of two gems by Wayne Shorter, "Virgo" and "Anna Maria." His interpretations of the standards are also of high value. He glides effortlessly through Johnny Mandel's "Emily" (a favorite of the late pianist Bill Evans and many others), while his sensitive rendition of the lush ballad "My Foolish Heart" is very lyrical. The session wraps with a loping, blues-drenched take of "One for My Baby."
