The charming piano master Harold Mabern is an unforgettable performer. He turns every performance into an informal master class regaling audiences with his first-hand account of jazz history and some of the best piano playing you will ever hear. Is there a more ebullient or convincing advocate for jazz today? His music is marked by unmistakable purpose and harmonic authority and he employs a powerful technique and deep insight into a wide range of repertoire from the Great American Songbook to his own soulful originals.

Mabern's piano style has been described as being "aggressive, very positive, crashing out chords that drop like pile drivers and warming up and down the keyboard with huge, whooping bursts of action", while, at the same time, he shows "a keen sensitivity" as "an extremely perceptive accompanist. He has played and recorded with a who's who of jazz including Lee Morgan, Miles Davis, Jackie McLean and Wes Montgomery to name a few.
