“Chemistry” is certainly an apt title for the latest Houston Person-Ron Carter duo album. Every tune is imbued with a rare sense of intimacy and almost telepathic sense of communication. Totally in their niche, the two men have selected a set list of favorite standards with which they are both amply familiar. But a good tune in the hands of artists such as Carter and Person is always a unique and special occasion. Person, in the glow of his artistic maturity, sounds completely relaxed with his burnished tone superbly caught by engineer Rudy Van Gelder. Ron Carter, carrying the responsibilities of time keeper, harmonist and unaccompanied soloist relishes his role and responds with an easy virtuosity that only a master musician can supply. This is music-making of the highest order.

Saxophonist Houston Person and bassist Ron Carter have a duo partnership that goes back at least as far as their two 1990 recordings, Something in Common and Now's the Time! Since those albums, the legendary artists have released several more duo collaborations, each one a thoughtful and minimalist production showcasing their masterful command of jazz standards, blues, and bop. The duo's 2016 effort, the aptly titled Chemistry, is no exception and once again finds Person and Carter communing over a well-curated set of jazz standards. As on their previous albums, Chemistry is a deceptively simple conceit; just two jazz journeymen playing conversational duets on well-known jazz songs.

They could make things much easier, just at their age, with their reputation. Play something that people identify with them: Locking swinging mainstream, flowing musette. Hello Mr. Carter, nice to meet you! Bonjour Monsieur Galliano, comment allez vous? Everyone stays with him, cheers and celebrates; One in the jazz clubs of the city, the other in the halls near the Seine. But who knows the two "partners in crime" or "partenaires dans le crime" knows enough that they were always in danger, like adrenaline junkies, the adventure music never from the safe side, but always behind their own Horizon. Perhaps it is curiosity, but perhaps also the prudence to have realized early on that the restriction to oneself does not advance anyone, but rather leads to a standstill, sometimes even to a step back.

A fun and personable mix of jazz and soul classics plus a couple of originals by guitarist Rodney Jones, Houston Person's The Opening Round: Groove Masters Series, Vol. 1 isn't a jazz album for the ages, but it's start-to-finish entertaining. It's a straight-up groove album, with Person in front of a four-piece organ combo anchored by the legendary Bernard "Pretty" Purdie on drums next to ex-Waitresses-bassist-turned-session-star Tracy Wormworth…

As the 21st century began, Houston Person was one of the last in a tradition of tough-toned but warm tenors able to straddle the boundaries between soul-jazz, hard bop, and soulful R&B. An expert at caressing and uplifting melodies, Person plays in the tradition of Gene Ammons. Person is in excellent form throughout this quartet/quintet date with pianist Richard Wyands, bassist Peter Washington, drummer Grady Tate, and, on four of the nine selections, guitarist Russell Malone.

Legendary jazz bassist Ron Carter has since 2002 led a drum-less trio with the late pianist Mulgrew Miller and guitarist Russell Malone, sometimes referred to as the Golden Striker Trio based on the title of their debut album. Miller left the band in 2012 and was replaced by Donald Vega, a younger and very talented pianist who used to be based in Los Angeles. Cocktails at the Cotton Club is the new trio's first CD, recorded live in concert at The Cotton Club in Tokyo, Japan. Due to the instrumental mix and stylistic choice, the group has an atmosphere of high quality chamber music. The dynamic range is somewhat limited and there's nothing flashy or bombastic about their music, but that is on purpose and that is not the point. The point is in the art of improvisation and interplay. The real excitement starts after the themes are stated, and attentive listeners will be rewarded by the wealth of ideas expressed and the beauty of the three masters' improvisation.

Reissue with the latest remastering. Features original cover artwork. Comes with a descripton in Japanese. A spare session, but never a sleepy one – given the inherent complexity in the music of both bassist Ron Carter and pianist Cedar Walton – and the way they can swing even in the most mellow moments! There's only a few of those on the record, though – as most of the tunes have an upbeat groove, even without any drums – with those masterfully carved lines from Carter's acoustic bass that were developed fully on his 70s years as a leader – alongside the ever-growing palette of sound that Walton's always able to pull from the familiar keys of an acoustic piano! The album's a masterpiece in subtle swing and spacing – and titles include "Little Waltz", "Heart & Soul", "Back To Bologna", "Beautiful Friendship", "Telephone", and "Django".
