Doctor of Jazz Pick of the Week.
This week I am most pleased to be listening to the latest release from the Houston Person Quintet, "Mellow." The title of the CD says it all. Other phrases that come to mind include "soulfully vibrant" ... "blues tinged & lyrical." Mellow is a blend of soft & mellow tunes with bright & bouncy interpretations of jazz standards. If you are one who enjoys a rich & full-bodied Tenor Sax sound, you're going to love "Mellow."
