Houston Person Quartet

  • Jazz Standard 116 East 27th Street New York, NY, 10016 United States (map)

Shows at 7:30pm & 9:30pm nightly.

Houston Person has been playing on our stage for 13 years, and every performance is better than the last. From bossa to ballads to bop, Houston’s warm tone and soulful style are a testament to his monumental contribution to the history of the tenor saxophone,  Person’s newest CD release, Something Personal, showcases the phenomenal vibes of Steve Nelson and his top-flight rhythm section, ably led by pianist John di Martino. Houston & Co. are able to caress the ballads with lush melodicism, yet still swing heartily through the up-tempo numbers like the bop masters of the past. This elder statesman is only on our stage for two nights, make sure you don’t miss him!
