Harold Mabern

ICON Magazine's Best Jazz Recordings of 2015

Jan 8, 2016

Happy New Year from ICON Magazine and Nick Bewsey with a fantastic lineup of jazz CDs from last year!

Pianist Harold Mabern is a two-fisted swinger, a legendary presence on the many great Blue Note dates of the ’60s, who continues to add a distinctive groove to his many solo projects. He’s partial to playing blocks of chords hard and quick, as if he needs to get somewhere fast. His melodic ideas seem to dance from his fingertips. It’s his signature technique combined with a sound that’s shot through with honey-dripping soul, as sweet and graceful as can be.
