As eclectic as he is talented, Person has recorded everything from disco and gospel to pop and r&b,
On the Truth!, the vamps become a little bluesier, but a bit more repetitive . Here, Person is in a Prestige studio sextet featuring the tenor player's longtime keyboardist Sonny Phillips on organ and Billy Butler on guitar. Person sounds large and in charge and Butler's guitar adds a rockish groove. Phillips, always a better rhythm player than a soloist or composer, keeps things grooving nicely
