The young disciples of the Garfield High School jazz band amply backed up old master Houston Person Saturday night for two sets at the Triple Door. While experience carried the night, it was youth that stole the show.
Person, known for his breathy, bluesy style and his longtime partnership with the late vocalist Etta Jones, fronted the big band for renditions of the Louis Prima ballad “A Sunday Kind of Love,” the swing classic “Sentimental Journey” and Illinois Jacquet’s “Black Velvet.”
