The Houston Shuffle

Janice Finlay - A.B.H. CD
Written By: Janice Finlay


The Houston Shuffle: Saxophonist Houston Pearson made a concert appearance in Winnipeg that I was able to attend thanks to a ticket from a friend.  It was a great concert – hard swinging, lyrical music and terrific playing.  I was so happy to hear some straight-ahead jazz played beautifully that I was inspired to write this tune, which I then named after Houston Pearson.  Coincidentally, both Quincy Davis and Jodi Proznick have had the opportunity to appear in concert with Houston Pearson within the past few years.

This is the most downloaded track from the CD and was included in the Fall 2012 JAZZIZ Magazine sampler disc!
