Houston Express is the ninth album led by saxophonist Houston Person. Houston Person’s the main soloist in front of bigger backings – heard here in a style that’s a bit like some of the changes in funky jazz that were going on over at Kudu Records during the same time – a filling up of the background rhythms, but still with hip players overall – and plenty of room for the main soloist to do his thing! Horace Ott conducts the backings, and brings in a soulful undercurrent that almost gives a few of the sharper numbers a soundtrack feel. Titles include “The Houston Express”, “Young Gifted & Black”, “Give More Power To The People”, “Chains of Love”, and “Enjoy”.

“As period soul-jazz goes, this is considerably above the average. It’s funky, but not in the bland crossover sense; there’s a sense of jazz ensemble discipline to the arrangements, but it’s still R&B-based enough to groove to” (Richie Unterberger, AMG)
