Virtually all of Houston Person's Muse recordings are easily recommended, although some of the earlier ones (such as this LP) have yet to be reissued on CD. For this fairly typical outing, the soulful tenor is assisted by guitarist Melvin Sparks, either organist Jon Logan or keyboardist David Braham, bassist Wilbur Bascomb, either Bernard Purdie or Billy James on drums and percussionist Ralph Dorsey. Highlights include "Summertime," an emotional "Never Let Me Go," "Please Send Me Someone to Love" and Person's "Blue Hue," which is taken as a duet with the acoustic piano of Braham.
