Legendary pianist Harold Mabern celebrates the release of his new, highly anticipated new recording, To Love and Be Loved. His exciting quintet features  three of his most successful former students and protégés in Eric Alexander, Freddie Hendrix and Joe Farnsworth, as well as frequent collaborator Nat Reeves. Audiophile Audition says, “Harold Mabern is one of our last living piano legends…His affinity for the blues, honed from Memphis, through the Windy City, and arrival in the Big Apple, make his piano playing a treat…Long live Harold Mabern.” His recent album, Afro Blue, was reviewed by Downbeat who said, “it isn’t merely great, it’s an exhilarating joy ride.” An ageless wonder, Mabern remains a musical treasure and one of the most powerful and illuminating pianists you’ll ever hear.
