Drummer Al Foster and pianist George Cables, two of the most beautiful players and personalities in jazz for half a century, are featured in this special Countdown Festival Quartet. Foster is well known for his work with Miles Davis in the 1970s and ‘80s, but with Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, and Joe Henderson while Cables is associated with Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Dexter Gordon and Art Pepper. JazzTimes reports, “Foster has spent six decades as a not-so-secret special groove ingredient enlivening performances and sessions by a long list of heavy hitters.” All About Jazz adds, “Anyone who is serious about jazz will tell you that George Cables belongs in the pantheon of the greatest jazz pianists.” Joining these two giants are two more well-known musicians in tenor saxophonist Eric Alexander and bassist David “Happy” Williams.
