O’s Notes: Venerable sax player Houston Person presents another fine recording with Reminiscing At Rudy’s, the studio of the legendary, late, recording engineer, Rudy Van Gelder. Person is accompanied by pianist Larry Fuller, guitarist Russell Malone, drummer Lewis Nash, and Matthew Parrish on bass. Houston’s sax tone is romancing and dynamic, seemingly getting better as he ages. He shares the stage with polished musicians who contribute to yet another fine collection. Start the fireplace, grab a brandy and enjoy! Highlights include “Put Your Head On My Shoulder”, “Please Send Me Someone To Love”, and “Again”.
