As it turns out Houston lives about 3 blocks away from me.

How cool is that! Did you invite him over? I had the opportunity to mix for him a couple of times. Totally enjoyed each time. One was at Al Gore's second inaugural ball. Tell him I said "Hey".

He won't remember, though.........:(

I just sold a bunch of stuff on Ebay and I was shipping it, and he was just being friendly and he heard me telling the PO clerk who is a friend of mine that it was an old sax neck, and he said "Really? A Selmer?" and thats when my brain did a little back flip as it took about 2 seconds to register who he was. He gave me his #. It would be great to hang with him and maybe take out some Aebersolds.

The couple of times I was around him in the early to mid '90's, he was an absolute gentleman. Unlike a certain trumpet player who was also doing the Al Gore gig.

I'm surprised you were able to catch him at home......that's not easy to do these days. Houston really is a Prince, just a marvelous guy. Great photo.
