From its languid beginning, saxophonist Houston Person’s own warmly engaging “Why Not?,” to its closing, Etta James’ slinky seduction “Sunday Kind of Love,” Emmet Cohen’s Master Legacy Series Vol. 5 Featuring Houston Person is a decidedly laid-back affair, unlike much of its predecessors which featured Jimmy Cobb, Ron Carter, George Coleman, Benny Golson and Albert Tootie Heath.

Maybe that is just the eighty-eight year old Person’s influence. His big tone and big presence fill the studio with a master’s calm, a master’s flair for swing and blues. No need to rush it Person exudes. No need to rush it at all.

So the moonlight-shift swing of “Why Not” leads to Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart’s 1932 charmer “Isn’t It Romantic?” and it damn sure is. Cohen and Person make sure of it, while the ever faithful, ever reliable drummer Kyle Poole and bassist Yasushi Nakamura keep the rhythm low key and swaying. Cohen (who cannot hide his enthusiasm for everything he plays) trades with and bounces joyfully off Person, his enervating runs a true tonic for these less than great days.
