Jazz musicians fomented the 1940s bebop revolution at a Harlem haven known as Minton’s Playhouse, and Gildo Mahones was in the thick of the action. He wasn’t a foundational figure in modern jazz, but as a rising young pianist he landed a plumb gig in Minton’s house trio in 1949 with bassist Percy Heath (who went on to fame in the Modern Jazz Quartet) and seminal bebop drummer Kenny Clarke, which meant accompanying a steady parade of masters, including Charlie “Bird” Parker, Coleman Hawkins, and Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis.
