One of St. Louis’s favorites and a giant of soul and groove based jazz, Houston Person’s velvet-toned saxophone has enamored jazz lovers since the 1960’s. Throughout his prolific career, Person has remained a symbol of constant swing and good times. He embraces the Great American Songbook and the blues, a foundation on which he has built a legendary career. As Person puts it, he wants to give people “good solid melodies with some improvisation and plenty of blues feel.” Swing…and soul…PERSON-ified!
