Houston Person

In the 1990s, Houston Person kept the soulful thick-toned tenor tradition of Gene Ammons alive, particularly in his work with organists. After learning piano as a youth, Person switched to tenor. While stationed in Germany with the Army, he played in groups that also included Eddie Harris, Lanny Morgan, Leo Wright, and Cedar Walton. Person picked up valuable experience as a member of Johnny Hammond's group (1963-1966) and became a bandleader in the following years, often working with the late singer Etta Jones. A duo recording with Ran Blake was a nice change of pace, but most of Houston Person's playing has been done in blues-oriented organ groups. He recorded a consistently excellent series of albums for Muse, eventually switching to HighNote Records for 2006's You Taught My Heart to Sing, 2007's Thinking of You, and 2008's Just Between Friends, which featured bassist Ron Carter. Released in 2012, Naturally, recorded at the famed Van Gelder Recording Studio, teamed Person with Cedar Walton on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, and Lewis Nash on drums. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

Houston Person is new to my listening, but I really enjoyed the selection chosen by Pandora today. Smooth, relaxing and definitely good music to listen to and kick back.
lights on low. drink in hand. that special lady AND HOUSTON PERSON. 'nuff said.
That's what's so special about Pandora to me. I'm forever discovering talent whose names I've never heard before. And I've been a jazz fan for a LOT of years. Houston is another one of those discoveries for me :-)

His albums with Ron Carter are masterful.
Nothing but soul!
Blues from the past-----Out s t a n d i n g , Percy!----Ra y Pickens, from your past, mister.
I've been fortunate enough to see him four times and got to chat with him at the Newport, OR, jazz festival in 2008. Not only a fantastic sax player but a friendly, down to earth kind of guy. Long live Houston.
