(Nov 15, 2012): Houston Person – Close Your Eyes

From the 1969 album, Goodness!  Rudy Van Gelder recorded and engineered this Person outing for Prestige and it, along with his 1968 Blue Odyssey, helped launch Person.  For many years, starting in the 1960s, Person played for Etta Jones, but he’s been prolific as a band leader with at over 70 LPs to his name.  On today’s selection you get a gospel organ opening, but its classic Person tenor sax in a mellow mood here.
