Houston Person with Ron Carter
Just Between Friends

"Some of the best jazz I've heard -- just bass and saxophone by two masters. It's simple but beautiful and each song sends happy chills up your spine." - AMAZON

In the 1980s, tenor saxophonist Houston Person and bassist Ron Carter recorded a pair of successful duo albums for the Muse label. Person clearly had a good time interacting with Ron Carter in the intimate format. Here it is a few years and albums later and the Person/Carter duo sounds as fresh and as inspired as it did when it when they first collaborated. Person and Carter swing hard and are at their most playful and creative in each other's company. They both sound inspired by this setting (where every sound counts) and play with full confidence; there is not a single hesitant moment. Superb Rudy Van Gelder sonics captures each subtle nuance of the masters' playing and Messrs. Person and Carter add another winner to their already impressive respective discographies.

Houston Person: tenor saxophone; Ron Carter: bass.
