Pamela Luss & Houston Person @ Saint Peter's Lutheran Church, in NY, Oct 19

Next Wednesday, October 19, at 1pm, singer Pamela Luss will be performing with Houston Person, Danny Mixon and Jon Burr @ Sanctuary of Saint Peter’s Lutheran Church (54th & Lexington Avenue, NYC).

Free entrance, of course, but a donation of $10 is suggested.

Luss & Person will be performing jazz standards and selections from their "Sweet and Saxy" album, 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 Creed Taylor's CTI Records with Les McCann ("Road Warriors") and Roger Kellaway ("Creation / The French-African Connection").
