August 3, 2012 – Jimmy Maks’s Portland, OR
This was the day that made history for me. After missing his live show for years, I finally had an opportunity to see Houston Person perform live. His company was amazing. The venue acoustics were perfect for that seasoned and sultry sound emanating from his gorgeous tenor saxophone. With 50+ full length albums to his credit, it was an incredible two sets of jazz to listen through. To top off the night, I got a chance to speak with Mr. Person, get a handshake in and a pat on the back! Not everyday do you get to meet one of your hero’s and a true jazz legend.
