Houston Person

'Hangin' with the Big Boys' cover

REVIEW: Lafayette Harris, Jr.,'Hangin' With The Big Boys,' Airmen Records >>

Lafayette Harris, Jr. is 'Hangin' with the Big Boys' on his new Airmen Records release. Actually, the one big boy he's hangin' with is Houston Person, 81, a classic oh-so-lyrical-and quite persuasive-tenor sax man who can elicit goose-bumps with his tone. Harris rightly defers to him yet sprinkles the sweetly swinging session with clusters of notes up and down the 88s in a soulful style bound to woo both jazz fans and lite-jazz fans alike.
