Houston Person


Houston Person wears the Boss Tenor crown, worn so long by Gene Ammons.

Mr. Person's working relationship with Ms. Jones began in 1973 and lasted for thirty years, until her recent passing in 2001. Early gigs happened while serving in the Army overseas in Germany, where he played with Eddie Harris, Cedar Walton and others
