Teddy Edwards & Houston Person
Close Encounters

Have a Close Encounter of the Jazz Kind with tenor icons Teddy Edwards and Houston Person! In the tradition of the great tenor sax battles of jazz history, we find that Houston and Teddy are more complimentary than confrontational. Their easy rapport, years of experience and great mutual respect produce a session of great warmth, humor, and perhaps most importantly, swing. Teddy's understated, subdued statements contrast nicely with Houston's big, 'happy-kid' sound on such great tunes as, THE BREEZE AND I, PENNIES FROM HEAVEN, BLUE AND SENTIMENTAL, GHOST OF A CHANCE and others. This Rudy Van Gelder recording is certain to receive major airplay.

Teddy Edwards- tenor saxophone; Houston Person- tenor saxophone; Stan Hope- piano; Ray Drummond- bass; Kenny Washington- drums

Tracks: Twisted; Blue and Sentimental; Pennies From Heaven; Night Train; I Don't Stand a Ghost of a Chance; The Breeze and I; Little Girl blue.
