Tenor saxophonist Houston Person is one of the most soulful jazz players on the scene today and is known as a musician who pays close attention to melody. He has released albums with many A-listers from the jazz world such as Etta Jones, Cedar Walton and Sonny Phillips as well as releasing a record with Grant Green on the legendary Blue Note Records. On Houston Person's latest album "Chemistry", which came out last year and received very good reviews, none other than Ron Carter is to be found as an integral part of the project. Together with Houston Person, several times Grammy Award nominee Dena DeRose shall be present with her stunning skills on both vocals and piano. All About Jazz anointed her as "Jazz Artist of the Year" in 2003, and "Best Jazz album" of 2007. She has brought vitality and innovation to performances alongside the likes of Phil Woods, John Scofield and Ray Drummond. Ignasi Gonzales will accompany them on the bass and Jo Krause on the drums. Rest assured that we are in for an incredible jazz treat when the two great American musicians will set the scene for some magical jazz displays in the last couple of days of Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2017.

Houston Person er kendt som en sjælfuld jazzmusiker med et skarpt øre for melodiske harmonier. Han har udgivet albums med en masse stjerner fra jazzens verden som Etta Jones, Cedar Walton og Sonny Phillips samt en udgivelse sammen med Grant Green på det legendariske Blue Note Records. På Houston Persons seneste album "Chemistry", der udkom sidste år og har fået meget fine anmeldelser med på vejen, finder man som en fast bestanddel på albummet ingen ringere end Ron Carter. Han får selskab af den Grammy Award nominerede Dena DeRose, der er kendt for hendes fantastiske færdigheder på både piano og vokal. Hun har optrådt sammen med bl.a. Phil Woods, John Scofield og Ray Drummond. De to amerikanere vil blive akkompagneret af bassisten Ignasi Gonzalez og trommeslageren Jo Krause. Glæd jer til saxofonist legendens indtog, når han sammen med den elegante Dena DeRose vil slutte Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2017 på Montmartre af med nogle magiske jazz aftener i intime rammer.
