“Chemistry” is certainly an apt title for the latest Houston Person-Ron Carter duo album. Every tune is imbued with a rare sense of intimacy and almost telepathic sense of communication. Totally in their niche, the two men have selected a set list of favorite standards with which they are both amply familiar. But a good tune in the hands of artists such as Carter and Person is always a unique and special occasion. Person, in the glow of his artistic maturity, sounds completely relaxed with his burnished tone superbly caught by engineer Rudy Van Gelder. Ron Carter, carrying the responsibilities of time keeper, harmonist and unaccompanied soloist relishes his role and responds with an easy virtuosity that only a master musician can supply. This is music-making of the highest order.

Saxophonist Houston Person and bassist Ron Carter have a duo partnership that goes back at least as far as their two 1990 recordings, Something in Common and Now's the Time! Since those albums, the legendary artists have released several more duo collaborations, each one a thoughtful and minimalist production showcasing their masterful command of jazz standards, blues, and bop. The duo's 2016 effort, the aptly titled Chemistry, is no exception and once again finds Person and Carter communing over a well-curated set of jazz standards. As on their previous albums, Chemistry is a deceptively simple conceit; just two jazz journeymen playing conversational duets on well-known jazz songs.

Bassist Ron Carter varies the personnel often enough to keep one's interest throughout this CD. Carter, who contributed six of the ten compositions (which alternate with four familiar standards) takes his share of bass solos but also showcases pianist Gonzalo Rubalcaba (who is pretty restrained throughout) on the opening "Mr. Bow-Tie" and allocates a generous amount of solo space on some selections to trumpeter Edwin Russell (inspired by Miles Davis but possessing his own fire) and Javon Jackson, who often sounds like a close relative of Joe Henderson.

It's hard to know what to think when jazz artists record popular songs. Are they recording them because they like the songs and think something new can be brought to them? Or are they hoping that by recording popular songs they too can become popular? Broken Windows, Empty Hallways includes two albums recorded by tenor Houston Person in 1972, the first of the same name and the second titled Sweet Buns & Barbeque. Both albums contain a number of songs that were popular at the time, from the soulful "Don't Mess With Bill" to John Lennon's "Imagine" to Webber-Rice's "Everything's Alright."

The all-star rhythm section for the former Miles Davis Quintet is represented here in a trio format.These guys came to play,and they pull out all the 'stops' for this session.Herbie presents some original tunes,and a great intepretation of 'Stella by Starlight'.The soloing is over the top.These three always play well together,and it is a real treat to here them in a trio setting.

The Purity of the Turf is kind of a "bucket list" moment for Ethan Iverson, who has always wanted to make a record with famous bassist Ron Carter. Iverson, pianist of the famous trio "The Bad Plus", chose drummer Nasheet Waits to fill out the trio, because Waits represents the avant-garde as well as swing. Criss Cross records are level playing field, with everyone recording in the same studio in a single day: Thus the sporting title, "The Purity of the Turf". The repertoire is mostly originals and jazz classics. A surprise highlight is the solo piano tribute to the late Paul Bley, "So Hard it Hurts" by Annette Peacock.
