Dexter GordonDexter Blows Hot And Cool (remastered edition) ... CD
Dooto/Boplicity (UK), 1955. New Copy ... $11.99
A seminal 50s session from the mighty Dexter Gordon – one of his few full albums from the decade, and one of the only ones to really capture him at the heart of his original LA scene! The set's got a nice bite, and a strong sense of focus – shorter tracks that step off strongly from the bop years that saw Gordon rise to fame, but without as much of the longer blowing from some of his "chase" recordings with other tenorists. Instead, the focus here is on great tight group sounds – just the right solo space to let each player open up and groove a bit, then come back together in sharp formation. The group features Dex on tenor, Jimmy Robinson on trumpet, Carl Perkins on piano, Leroy Vinnegar on bass, and Chuck Thompson on drums – and titles include "Silver Plated", "Rhythm Mad", "Bonna Rue", "Blowin' For Dootsie", and "Cry Me A River".

Dexter GordonDexter Calling (RVG edition) ... CD
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... $5.99
Don't take the cover the wrong way – because this isn't one of those "phoned in" sessions that seem to turn up way too much in contemporary jazz! The album's a real classic from Dexter's first big "comeback" period – and represents the strength of his Blue Note years at their best! Gordon's rich, full tone isn't diminished a bit here – and his inventive blowing is given free reign on a set of quartet numbers recorded with Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones. The album's got a few strong originals from Gordon – "Soul Sister", "Ernie's Tune", and "I Want More – plus the very sweet Kenny Drew tracks "Modal Mood" and "Clear The Dex"! CD also features the bonus track "Landslide". CD

Dexter GordonGettin' Around (RVG remaster edition) ... CD
Blue Note, 1965. Used ... $3.99
A really unusual album for Dexter Gordon – one that has him working in a quintet with vibes by Bobby Hutcherson! Hutcherson's sound really transforms the session, giving it a shimmering middleground that disperses the dominance that Gordon's tenor usually has – and creating a warm, fluid feel that's really great. Barry Harris is in the group on piano – providing some wonderful accompaniment that's a great fit for Hutcherson's vibes – and the rest of the group is completed by the excellent rhythm section of Bob Cranshaw on bass and Billy Higgins on drums! The album includes a great version of "Manha de Carnaval", plus a Dex original, "Le Coiffeur" – and the tracks "Heartaches", "Who Can I Turn To", and "Everybody's Somebody's Fool". CD also features the bonus tracks "Flick Of A Trick" and "Very Saxily Yours". CD

Dexter GordonManhattan Symphonie (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Columbia, 1978. Used ... $12.99
Later genius from Dexter Gordon – an album recorded upon his return to the US in 1976, and done in a style that breaks the bounds of some of his sessions in Europe! Gordon seems to take new life in the recording – moving past the simple role of main soloist on familiar tunes, and stepping into a much more strongly group-minded leader – one who grooves easily with the piano of George Cables, bass of Rufus Reid, and drums of Eddie Gladden – in a session that's overflowing with soulful invention. Even older tunes take on a new spark of life in these arrangements – and Gordon's phrasing has this "bite" that comes through beautifully, even in the mellower moments. Titles include "Tanya", "I Told You So", "LTD", "Moment's Notice", and "As Time Goes By". Plus, CD features 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks – "Ruby My Dear" and "Secret Love". CD

Dexter GordonOur Man In Paris (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1963. New Copy (reissue)... $16.99 19.99
One of our favorite Dexter Gordon sessions for Blue Note – and a unique album that's one of the first to illustrate his growing role in the European jazz scene! The group's a quartet – which let's Dex stand out front with plenty of space for marvelous tenor work – and it features Parisian bassist Pierre Michelot, plus Americans Bud Powell on piano and Kenny Clarke on drums – two players who were already making a bit name for themselves overseas. The album's a perfect link between Gordon's earlier American work and his long string of European sessions to come – and titles include a great take of "Scrapple from the Apple", plus excellent readings of "Stairway to the Stars" and "Night in Tunisia". The format is simple, but the sound is magic – classic Dexter Gordon in a tight Blue Note mode! LP, Vinyl record album

Dexter GordonSoy Califa – Live From Magleaas Hojskole 1967 (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Gearbox (UK), 1967. New Copy ... $34.99
An ultra-rare performance from Dexter Gordon – one at a high school in Denmark at the same time he was really beginning to take off at the Club Montmartre in Copenhagen! The group here is similar to one that was working with Dex in the club – Kenny Drew on piano, Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums – a rollicking rhythm section that really takes off on the title track – a searing rendition of "Soy Califa", which is one of our favorite Dexter Gordon tunes from the Blue Note years. The set then slides into a laidback reading of "Shadow Of Your Smile", with Dex blowing soulfully and deep – and the record concludes with a tight boppish version of "Blues Up & Down", with lots of room for long tenor and piano solos! The playing is great, but we should say that the recording quality seems to have the bass more upfront than both the piano and tenor – so the mix is a bit unusual. LP, Vinyl record album

Wardell Gray & Dexter GordonChase ... CD
Decca/Giants Of Jazz, Late 40s/Early 50s. Used ... $6.99
A classic meeting of two powerful tenors on the west coast – Wardell Gray and Dexter Gordon – locked together beautifully in this seminal recording from an early Gene Norman concert! The format is loose and free – a key bop illustration of what the tenor sax could offer, when set in the hands of giants like this – and each track runs for an entire side of the record, with mighty bold solos from both Gray and Gordon, blowing head to head in the "chase" – plus trumpet from Conte Candoli, piano from Bob Tucker, bass from Don Bagley, and drums from Chico Hamilton. The album only features two long tracks – "The Chase" and "The Steeplechase" – but both of those are more than enough! This CD also includes 11 other tracks from the time period. CD

New Dexter GordonCandlelight Lady ... CD
Steeplechase (Denmark), 1974. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Dexter Gordon in one of his greatest settings ever – playing live in the familiar confines of the Montmartre jazz club in Copenhagen, with sublime trio backing from Kenny Drew! The tracks are long and open – that style that Dex perfected with Steeplechase Records, which provides such a great showcase for his solo talents – and the album's a great illustration of why we never get tired of Gordon in this format! Each track pushes the 10 minute mark – and Dexter's got this bold, strong tone on tenor – but also these personal, very feeling qualities as well – the undercurrent of soul that he never seemed to develop until the later years of his life – underscored by Drew's work on piano, plus Mads Vinding on bass and Ed Thigpen on drums. Tracks include the long originals "Sticky Vicket", "Candlelight Lady", "Montmartre", and "The Rainbow People" – plus "Old Folks" and "There Is No Greater Love". CD

New Dexter GordonDoin' Allright ... LP
Blue Note, Early 60s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Doin Allright? Dexter's doing great on this one – working with that fully mature Blue Note sound of his – a rich approach to soloing that keeps the tracks cooking with excitement! The group on the set's an all-star lineup that includes Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Horace Parlan on piano, George Tucker on bass, and Al Harewood on drums – and the tunes are a great blend of soulful rhythms and bop improvisation – heard especially well on the album's landmark tune "Society Red"! All tracks are great, though – and other titles include "You've Changed", "For Regulars Only", and "I Was Doing All Right". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dexter GordonGO (75th Anniversary Edition) ... LP
Blue Note, 1962. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal stuff – and one of Dexter Gordon's excellent Blue Note sessions with pianist Sonny Clark! Sonny's in fine fine form for the record, and in our opinion, he seems to be the most relaxed and inventive when accompanying Dexter Gordon – even over other Blue Note horn players, and that's saying a heck of a lot! Gordon's very much in the pocket on the record too – and doesn't spend too much time soloing around and around, and really goes for the tighter groove laid out by Clark on piano, Butch Warren on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Cuts include "Cheese Cake", "Second Balcony Jump", and "Love For Sale". LP, Vinyl record album

New Dexter Gordon & Slide HamptonDay In Copenhagen (Prestige) ... LP
MPS/Prestige, 1970. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A tremendous European meeting of tenorist Dexter Gordon and trombonist Slide Hampton – brought together in this impeccable sextet session for MPS – a real standout in the label's straight jazz catalog over the years! By the time of the set, Gordon had been working heavily in Europe, especially Copenhagen – a locale where he was given ample freedom to stretch out and really explore his tone and phrasing. Hampton had also kicked around the continent a fair bit too, but in a tighter format, doing arrangements for others and working in bigger groups – and it's actually his careful touch that really helps shape the sound of the set – by bringing Gordon's groove into a focus more strongly than before, and reminding us that Dex was a great group player when he wanted to be! The frontline features Gordon's tenor, Hampton's trombone, and the trumpet of Dizzy Reece – often stating the heads in a fluidly soulful way, then breaking out nicely with individual voices – very much in the best Blue Note mode. Rhythm is by the trio of Kenny Drew on piano, Art Taylor on drums, and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass – and titles include 3 excellent originals by Hampton – "A New Thing", "My Blues", and "A Day In Vienna" – plus a wicked almost-Lee Morgan-esque take on "What's New", and versions of "Shadow Of Your Smile" and "You Don't Know What Love Is". US pressing of the MPS album. LP, Vinyl record album

A huge collection of material that Dexter recorded for Savoy in the early bop years – mostly issued as 78 rpm singles, but also including a number of tracks from the album Dexter Rides Again. The set brings together a wealth of alternate takes of the material, including a number of unissued ones – as well as great notes on the material, and a higher level of sound quality than the original vinyl.

Benny GolsonUp Jumped Spring (aka Benny Golson Quartet) ... CD
LRC, 1990. Used ... $6.99
Beautiful work from the always-great Benny Golson – a wonderfully understated quartet session that's filled with plenty of long tracks, and sublime solo work from Golson! Benny's performed in many settings over the years – all of which are great – but we're recently quite partial to his more relaxed and open sessions from this period – dates like this which show a newly reborn focus on the sound of his horn and his ability to improvised creatively over an extended period of time. There's a definite Dexter Gordon influence to the impulse – but Benny serves up the music with a fair bit more soul and lyrical imagination – working here with a group that includes Mulgrew Miller on piano, Rufus Reid on bass, and Tony Reedus on drums. The set list features Golson standards "Up Jumped Spring" and "Stable Mates" – as well as the tracks "Voyage", "Beautiful Love", and "Goodbye". CD

Wardell GrayWardell Gray Memorial Album (2LP set) ... LP
Prestige, Early 50s/1964. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $5.99
One of the best-ever documents of the young genius of tenorist Wardell Gray – exactly the kind of music that shows why he was one of the biggest and best of the bop saxophonists – before he was taken away from us all too soon! The material here was originally issued on 78s or 45s, and comes together as a great full length representation of Gray at his best – and on the set Wardell plays tenor in one group with Al Haig on piano and Roy Haynes on drums – on titles that include "Easy Living", "Twisted", and "Southside". Another combo features Phil Hill on piano – on "Treadin", "Grayhound", and "Blue Gray". And the last combo is Teddy Charles' West Coasters – with Charles on vibes, Frank Morgan on alto, and Sonny Clark on piano – the last two of whom make their debut on the record! On the second half, Wardell works in some bigger groups on great long tracks with a nicely jamming feel! Players include Sonny Criss on alto, Art Farmer and Clark Terry on trumpet, Dexter Gordon on tenor, and Hampton Hawes on piano – and titles include "Move", "Scrapple From The Apple", "Lover", "Farmer's Market", "April Skies", "Jackie", and "Sweet & Lovely".

Stan LeveyThis Time The Drum's On Me ... CD
Bethlehem/Solid (Japan), 1955. New Copy ... $13.99
A nice little bit of bop from LA – a tightly-crafted mid 50s date for the Bethlehem label – featuring drummer Stan Levey at the head of a great group of horn players! The album features some standout work from Dexter Gordon on tenor – making a rare appearance here as a sideman – and the frontline of the sextet also features Conte Candoli on trumpet and Frank Rosolino on trombone – both well-matched players, especially at this point in their careers. The group's completed by Leroy Vinnegar on bass and Lou Levy on piano – and there's a bit more bite on some tracks than the usual Bethlehem set. Titles include "Diggin For Diz", "Ruby My Dear", "Tune Up", "Stanley The Steamer", and "This Time The Drum's On Me". CD

New Hank Mobley with The Kenny Drew TrioBlue Bossa (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
SSJ (Japan), 1968. New Copy ... $22.99
A rare live appearance from the great Hank Mobley – a player who wasn't always that present on the European scene, but is heard here in a strong Copenhagen concert with pianist Kenny Drew! The format's a bit similar to other American tenor dates of the time – especially those of Dexter Gordon – as Drew's trio – with Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass and Albert Heath on drums – provides a solid rhythmic groove while Mobley really stretches out with long-spun solos on some extended tracks! The format's very different than most other recordings that Hank made in the 60s – especially during these later years – and although the date has a bit of a "broadcast" quality from the way it was recorded, Mobley's tenor shines through on long readings of "Summertime", "Workout", "Blue Bossa", and "Alone Together".

New Bent JaedigBent Jaedig Was Here – Live At Montmartre 1969 ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 1969. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Never-heard work from tenorist Bent Jaedig – easily one of the most important figures on the Danish jazz scene in the 60s! Bent's working here in a loose, open style that's quite different from some of his more tightly arranged albums of the decade – a mode that's still got lots of sharp edges and modern moments in Jaedig's solos, but which also gets some more conventional drive from the Cafe Montmartre rhythm section of Kenny Drew on piano, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and JC Moses on drums! Tracks are long, and handled in a format that's similar to Montmartre recordings by Dexter Gordon or Johnny Griffin from the same time – but Bent's overall style is much edgier, and he really makes a lot with the extended solo space. Titles include Long versions of "What's New", "Love For Sale", "Softly As In A Morning Sunrise", "On Green Dolphin Street", and "Bent's Minor Blues". CD

Columbia/Discos 605, 1979. New Copy 2CD ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A groundbreaking record for the time – especially considering the barriers between American and Cuba! In a unique effort, Columbia Records managed to record this landmark concert set of performances featuring some of its biggest artists alongside other Cuban players – all captured live at the Karl Marx theater in Havana! This first volume is a very wide-ranging blend of styles – jazz, fusion, Latin, and bits of straight ahead vocals – handled by a diverse array of hip CBS superstars at the time, but often with a decidedly Cuban bent. Titles include "Black Market" by Weather Report, "Para Flauta Y Adaido De Mozart" by Irakera, "Cuba Al Fin" by Stephen Stills, "Project S" and "Black Stockings" by CBS Jazz All-Stars (Dexter Gordon, Jimmy Heath, Stan Getz, & Others), "Dark Prince" by Trio Of Doom, "Juan Pachanga" by Fania All-Stars, "Living Legend" by Kris Kristofferson, "Que Barla Monda" by Orquesta Aragon, and "Scherezada/Sun Sun" by Cuban Percussion Ensemble.

A rare cross-cultural session from 1979 – one in which Columbia Records was allowed to record live performances involving a number of American jazz musicians playing alongside Cuban groups like Irakere and The Cuban Percussion Ensemble! The blend of modes here is really great – somewhat in the territory of Irakere's albums for Columbia, but a lot wider-ranging overall – sometimes sensitive and jazz-based, sometimes much more upbeat and jamming! Jazz players include Dexter Gordon, Paquito D'Rivera, Jimmy Heath, and Stan Getz on tenor sax; Arthur Blythe on alto sax, Cedar Walton on piano, Jimmy Heath on bass, and Tony Williams on drums – as well as the members of Weather Report, who turn in one especially cooking number. Irakere plays "Mil Ciento De Junedad" and "Contradanza", Weather Report play "Teentown", Cuban Percussion Ensemble play "Scherezada/Sun Sun", John McLaughlin's Trio Of Doom play "Para Oriente" and "Continuum", and assorted jazz players handle "Tin Tin Deo", "Polkadots & Moonbeams", "Sounds For Sore Ears", and "I Wanna Be".

A really amazing little record – way more than usual for this sort of live recording – given that it features some very unique performances together by artists we've never heard on the same stage otherwise! The premise is simple, but wonderfully effective – in that the album brings together some of the leading lights of the Columbia/CBS jazz stable at the time – a massive lineup of talent from a few key generations in jazz, sounding surprisingly great hear together! All tracks are nice and long – and titles include a brilliant version of "Infant Eyes" by a quartet with Stan Getz on tenor and Bob James on piano; "Fried Bananas" with Dexter Gordon on tenor, Slide Hampton on trombone, Woody Shaw on trumpet, and George Duke on piano; "Bahama Mama" with Bob James on keyboards, Bobbi Humphrey on flute, Eric Gale and Steve Kahn on guitars, and Billy Cobham on drums – and the long jam session tracks "Montreux Summit", "Blues March", and "Andromeda" – which feature work from most of the players above, all working in one large group – plus added flute from Hubert Laws and Thijs Van Leer, percussion from Ralph Maconald, and bass from Alphonso Johnson.
