Houston Person Trio



Houston Person (tenor sax), Ben Paterson (organ), Willie Jones III (drums)

At the age of 84, Houston Person is one of the great veterans of the tenor sax, continuing that long line of sax players of striking and intense sound dating back to Gene Ammons. He successfully swept through the era of swing and later through hard bop, to finally become one of the major exponents of soul jazz. He has recorded 75 albums in his own name, as well as others recorded in collaboration with Don Ellis, Cedar Walton, Etta Jones, Lena Horne, Horace Silver and other magnificent performers.
