O’s Notes: Houston takes a trip into the cool jazz zone swinging with “Why Not” and romancing us like crazy on the title track. He gets help from Eddie Allen (t), Randy Johnston (g) and his traveling rhythm section: Stan Hope (p), Chip White (d) and Per-Ola Gadd (b). They cruise through ten good songs including Houston’s own “Why Not” and “Put It Right There”. We liked “So What” and “Time Stood Still” best. As always, Person’s music just feels good.
