The New-York Historical Society is grateful to Bank of America for its generous support of all Free Fridays programs.


This event is part of the New-York Historical Society's spring 2014 Free Fridays programs, sponsored by Bank of America. Entrance to the concert series is free during the Museum's Pay-as-you-wish Friday Nights (6 – 8 pm). No advanced reservations. Tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 6 pm. New-York Historical Society members receive priority.


In conjunction with the exhibition The Black Fives, the New-York Historical Society is proud to present a series of three concerts celebrating jazz from the early-to-mid-20th Century —a significant period during which African Americans forged a powerful presence in sports, music, and culture.


George Cables, a celebrated jazz pianist and major voice in modern jazz, is currently performing and recording as a soloist, with trios and larger ensembles, and as a clinician in college jazz programs. He has performed and recorded with some of the greatest jazz musicians of our time, including Joe Henderson, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, and Dizzy Gillespie. This will be Mr. Cables’ first appearance at New-York Historical. His Jazz at Lincoln Center performances often sell out.
