Houston Person, saxophone

with John Toomey, piano; Jimmy Masters, bass

Saturday, May 17, 8:00 PM
Attucks Theatre, Norfolk
Tickets $20

Now in his seventh decade of performing, the legendary Houston Person carves a hard groove with his tenor sax, growling blues and soul in a style all his own. A veteran of more than 75 albums as a player and bandleader, this longtime partner of the great Etta James is one of the greats--“an eloquent messenger from a jazz era rooted in traditional blues, black church music, Broadway love songs and the impersonation, by sax, of a singer's tone palette” (The Guardian).

Co-presented with Sevenvenues.
Supported in part by the Norfolk Consortium.
