O’s Notes: Bassist Ron Carter and tenor saxophonist Houston Person are living legends who’ve made a notable contribution on countless recordings. Their dossiers are like a who’s – who in jazz! They perform ten classic selections as a duo, a perfect format allowing us to appreciate all of the nuances of well-decorated professionals. This is their fifth duo recording, a partnership that started in 1990. Carter works his bass as an anchor, a melodic instrument and timepiece. Person breathes warm, deep passion into every note drawing listeners into his mood. Together they have great Chemistry and their potion will satisfy many listeners across all ages and genres. The special ingredient here as on countless other recordings was the late recording engineer, Rudy Van Gelder who puts us right there in the sweet spot. There was absolutely nothing wrong with his ears at 91 years!
