Radio Free Birdland Presents Houston Person with The Emmet Cohen Trio
Tenor Saxophonist Houston Person with The Emmet Cohen Trio
Tenor saxophonist Houston Person is a living legend of jazz. The South Carolina native is a keeper of the soul jazz tradition, having earned his reputation on the 1960's-70's "Chitlin' Circuit," in organ groups led by John Hammond, Charles Earland, and Don Patterson. Most notably, he spent three decades as the melodic foil to the late jazz vocalists Etta Jones and Freddy Cole. For Radio Free Birdland, Houston teams with emerging star pianist Emmet Cohen's trio. With Yasushi Nakamura (bass) and Evan Sherman (drums).
