Houston Person with Ron Carter
Be forewarned. For some of you, this Houston Person-led sentimental journey might summon up images and sounds long forgotten -- bands, dancing, ballrooms, the voices of Billy Eckstine and Dinah Washington. For, on this CD, tenorman Person takes listeners back to that golden time, when popular music was performed by orchestras and band vocalists, when songs were hum-able and danceable. Houston Person's combination of warmth and robust authority supported by four superior musicians make this a very satisfying musical excursion. If you're of Houston's generation, you'll go back to the bands, ballrooms and "Your Hit Parade". And if you're not, it will be a voyage of discovery.
