Well, contrary to what you've been told, lightning CAN strike twice, as is evidenced by HOUSTON PERSON's latest release. Hot on the heels of his super-successful, "MY ROMANCE" (HCD 7033), Houston brings together a winning team of players in the famed Rudy Van Gelder Studio. Richard Wyands is on hand at the keyboard and guitar great Russell Malone joins the top-flight rhythm section of Ray Drummond and Grady Tate. Great tunes ("The Night We Called It a Day", "At Last", "It Shouldn't Happen to a Dream" & others), and the full, rich tenor sound of Houston Person virtually guarantee major radio play at all key time slots. As one radio veteran said about "My Romance": "This isn't 'smooth jazz,' this is real jazz; it's real smooth jazz."

Tracks: Here's That Rainy Day; I Only Have Eyes For You; It Might As Well Be Spring; Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me; At Last; The Night We Called It a Day; It Shouldn't Happen To a Dream; I'll Be Around; Hey There!; If.
