Houston Person
I'm Just a Lucky So and So

Houston Person may be one of the few still-active players in the long history of blues-drenched "boss tenors" that stretches back to Gene Ammons, Arnett Cobb, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Bullmoose Jackson and others. Person has long exhibited a keen ear for simpatico musicians, ranging from his classic partnership with Etta Jones, to his series of superb duo encounters with bass master Ron Carter the man chooses his company skillfully. This date is no exception, as he negotiates his tenor in the company of first class players. It's clear that his band mates took his studio-made admonition of "Right note or wrong note it's got to swing!" to heart for each one stands in complete harmony with Houston Person's noble intentions for this date.
