Pamela Luss & Houston Person live @ Trumpets, NJ, tonite!

Featured in the March issue of Hot House magazine, jazz vocalist Pamela Luss will appear tonight, March 27, with tenorist Houston Person at "Trumpets" club. Two sets: 8 and 10pm
"Trumpets" is located at 6 Depot Square in Montclair (near Walnut Street), New Jersey - about 1/2 hour away from NYC.
All directions are listed here:

Cover Charge- $20, plus $12 minumum

The back-up band band consists of John Di Martino (piano), Jon Burr (bass) & Alvin Atkinson (drums).

Luss & Person will be performing jazz standards and selections from their recent album, "Sweet and Saxy," released by the Savant label. Among them: "Canadian Sunset," "You Better Go Now," "Star Eyes," "Maybe You'll Be There," Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" (Sivuca's greatest hit in the dancefloor jazz scene) and Carole King's "It's Too Late."

With a gorgeous warm tone and a fat sound a la Stanley Turrentine, Houston is maybe the most underrated tenorist in jazz history, having recorded great duo albums with Ron Carter. I also love his projects for CTI with Les McCann ("Road Warriors") and Roger Kellaway ("Creation / The French-African Connection").
