Whether swinging on standards, jamming on the blues, or instilling a romantic mood on a beautiful ballad, singer and saxist are completely in sync with each other throughout.
At Birdland, they'll perform favorites from their four releases together (the three albums, "Your Eyes," "Magnet" and "Sweet & Saxy," plus the single "Bewitched") along with new numbers, both classic and contemporary that they are constantly adding to their repertoire.

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").
