Tender Standards
Steve Emerine | Tucson, AZ United States | 06/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Houston Person can wail with the best of them, but he also may be the best tenor saxophonist since Ben Webster when it comes to presenting soulful, romantic ballads. In just under an hour, he works his magic on nine standards, including "But Beautiful," "Laura," "Time After Time," "Mean to Me" and the title tune. Richard Wyands, Ray Drummond and Kenny Washington provide the rhythm on piano, bass and drums. Another late-night listen from High Note Records!"
Great late night music

"If you like the standard American song book, and the ballad then Houston Person's CD, My Romance will stay in your CD player a long time. This is a CD the late nite jazz radio stations will be playing for some time.Houston Person has been on the scene for a long time, ebracing both jazz and R&B. Houston Person plays the tenor with lots of soul, sparing notes when needed and giving us lots of those mellow notes when they are needed. His back up piano, Richard Wands, is an acomplished supportive player, filling in nicely. My only critisism is that the CD is about as long as an old LP. There are nine songs, I wish there were at least twelve. Maybe Houston is saving up for another CD of these beautiful ballads."

"Even though I normally prefer more uptempo stuff, "My Romance" is one of the best jazz albums I've bought in recent years. Every cut is a winner."
