O’s Notes: The Melody Lingers On is a satisfying follow-up to Nice ‘n’ Easy, Houston Person’s last album. The venerable tenor saxophonist continues to impress listeners with his seductive sound on tunes like “Bewitched” and “Try A Little Tenderness”. Lafayette Harris (p), Lewis Nash (d), Steve Nelson (vibes) and Ray Drummond (b) are the supporting band that puts harmony behind Person’s wonderful melodies. And as the title suggests, Houston is once again on point!
