Kerrytown Concert House is thrilled to present international jazz legend, tenor saxophonist, Houston Person, for a very special jazz presentation!

On bandstands around the world, Person, who turned 87 on Nov. 10, is the embodiment of the power yielded by strong melodies plus a heavy dose of soul. He springs from the lineage of tenor saxophone titans such as Illinois Jacquet, whom he names a key influence on his early listening and playing. Person’s newest recording, Live In Paris (recorded live in 2019), is an energizing set of driving, soulful swing and balladry that matches him with the talented young organist Ben Patterson, guitarist Peter Bernstein and drummer Willie Jones III. For this KCH appearance, he’ll be backed by regional jazz masters, Pat Cronley (piano), Paul Keller (bass), and David Taylor (drums). Don’t miss this rare opportunity to experience a jazz legend up close and personal!
