Editorial Reviews

Houston Person can wail with the best of them, but he also may be the best tenor saxophonist since Ben Webster when it comes to presenting soulful, romantic ballads. Here on his newest recording, made under the watchful eyes and ears of Rudy Van Gelder, he works his magic on ten great tunes accompanied by John di Martino on piano, with Ray Drummond, John Chirillo and Lewis Nash rounding out the rhythm section. With one original, one jazz standard and eight classics from the Great American Songbook, Houston Person shows that the best music is still the music that speaks directly to the heart.

While many high profile jazz labels degenerate, Joe Fields' Highnote label continues putting out high quality recordings on a consistent basis. This session, recorded by RVG, is no exception. The title 'Mellow' is somewhat misleading, nothing sleepy about this. Particularly noteworthy is Lewis Nash--his cymbals are up high in the mix and his unfailing swing is a wonder. He, along with Ray Drummmond on bass, make sure nothing lags. Houston Person has a huge tone and blows a lot of soul into this program of mostly standards and ballads. Blues in the AM is my favorite cut--check out the sample and you'll know right away what this CD is all about.

Diggin' on Persons. I don't have too much Houston in my collection and I can't tell you why; this recording is so well done you have to check it out. Excellent selections with an ensemble that plays with precision and style. Among my favorites is the super bluesy God Bless the Child. Buy this album.

As a jazz lover I like this collection of jazz music, however, not crazy about some of the songs. I do like it though enough to listen to it every day. Houston Person is on of the better saxophone players. Would recommend it to anyone who loves jazz.
