You Are Like The Sunlight
Goodbye Mr. P
Inside The Plain Of The Elliptic
Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Bassist Clint Houston never made many albums as a leader, but all of them are well worth tracking down – and this one may be the best of the bunch! The set has Clint working with frequent musical partner Joanne Brackeen on piano, as well as Ryo Kawasaki on guitars – who’d played with Joanne around the same time – and percussionist Rubens Bassini completes the group, and adds in some great subtle elements at the bottom. Tracks are long, and often very personal – quite different than the sort of music that many other bassists might provide as a leader – and a great showcase for Houston’s highly melodic approach to his instrument. Clint plays both acoustic and electric, and a bit of guitar as well – and titles include “Black Thing”, “Geri”, “Goodbye Mr P”, “You Are Like The Sunshine”, and “Letitia”.
