It’s nearly impossible to mention the name Van Morrison without the song "Moon Dance" popping up in the conversation shortly thereafter. Rightfully so, because that song placed the Irish, blue-eyed soul singer on the musical map. However, Van’s talents go beyond his biggest hit, before and after its 1970 release. Coming up in Northern Ireland in the late 1950s, Van was influenced by the US blues, R ‘n’ B, and jazz music he heard alongside traditional Irish music and skiffle, which was a popular trend at the time.

Houston Person is in his mid-80s, despite recording nearly 80 albums as a leader, he is still playing at a mercurial level of excellence. He is one of the last standing saxophonists that serve as a link between the pioneers and vintage players that were Coleman Hawkins, Ben Webster, Lester Young et al and the contemporary players from the John Coltrane school.  Mr. Person brings his signature big, fat tenor sound to his latest project, Rain or Shine for the HighNote label, his home since its inception in the early 1990s.
