Review:
Starting in 1976 and continuing for 20 years, Houston Person was a steady fixture on the Muse label. A throwback to Gene Ammons, Gator Jackson and Red Holloway, Person never received much publicity but has been near the top of his field since the late '60s. His basic, swinging approach has resulted in a consistent string of rewarding and accessible albums. This fine Muse LP teams Person with trumpeter Bill Hardman, guitarist Jimmy Ponder, organist Sonny Phillips, drummer Idris Muhammad and percussionist Larry Killian. The repertoire on the album is more inspired than usual, with Phillips contributing the catchy title tune; other songs include the obscure Tadd Dameron ballad "Dameron," "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "My Romance." Worth searching for.
