Product Description:

Personnel: Houston Person (tenor saxophone); Cecil Bridgewater (trumpet); Stan Hope (piano); Buster Williams (bass); Grady Tate (drums); Ralph Dorsey (percussion).
Recorded at Van Gelder Recording Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on January 23, 1987. Originally released on Muse.
This Muse recording differs from many of tenor saxophonist Houston Person's previous ones in that Person is backed by a piano rather than an organ; he sounds inspired by the "new" setting. Person heads a sextet also including trumpeter Cecil Bridgewater, pianist Stan Hope, bassist Buster Williams, drummer Grady Tate and percussionist Ralph Dorsey. They perform the tenor's "Just for You" and five standards, with the highlights including Benny Carter's "Only Trust Your Heart," "Almost Like Being in Love" and a blues-drenched version of "It's the Talk of the Town." A particularly strong effort by the very consistent tenor great. ~ Scott Yanow
