DEXTER GORDON picture
Dexter Keith Gordon (1923-1990) was a U.S. jazz tenor saxophonist.

Gordon was born on 27th February 1923 in Los Angeles. He became one of the first bebop tenor players to carve out a distinctive style. He matured into one of the major tenor voices in post-war jazz-- an original player who was perhaps the single strongest influence on the young John Coltrane. He ranks with Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Stan Getz, Joe Henderson, and a dozen or so others as one of the modern masters of the tenor saxophone.

From 1940 to 1980, Dexter Gordon led his own ensembles and played with such jazz greats as Lionel Hampton, Tadd Dameron, Charles Mingus, Louis Armstrong, and Billy Eckstine. He also played with the Fletcher Henderson band in Los Angeles for a few weeks in 1947. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License and may

DEXTER GORDON Reviews

DEXTER GORDON Manhattan Symphonie

Album · 1978 · Hard Bop
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
darkprinceofjazz
When someone asks me who my favorite Saxophonist is, I almost feel ashamed that I don't tell them Coltrane or Parker, for Dexter Gordon is my true love, to my ears no tenor saxophonist can milk a ballad like Dex, when I hear him play, it's as if smoke fills the room and visions of beautiful woman from a by gone era are at my grasp, Dexter Gordon may not be the Most technically gifted saxophonist, he certainly wasn't the greatest composer of all time, but he had a tone to die for, the quintessential tone in my mind.

Manhattan Symphony, a quartet session, with George Cables on piano, Eddie Gladden on drums and Rufus Reid on bass, leads off with one of these gorgeous ballads, "As Time Goes By" nothing fancy, just pure Dexter. An irony about this music from 1978, Dex clearly had developed a Coltrane influence, and he shows it off on "Moments Notice" with some nice Piano work from the underrated George Cables, The highest point of many high points is "Tanya" the Donald Byrd composition that Dexter first performed on his Blue Note session, "One Flight Up", This time a briefer 7 minutes, and not the 17 minute epic of before, just a gorgeous reading, Dexter digs in to it, with that aforementioned tone, just love it, perfect.

"Body and Soul" "I Told you So" and "LTD" close out the 6 track long player, Dexter does indeed milk "Body and Soul" for everything it's worth, with an unaccompanied ending that feels as lonely as it lonely gets, on "LTD" he throws in his usual charming quotes, "Mona Lisa" this time around, As strung out as Dexter was the majority of his career, it's amazing how much great music he left this world, and Manhattan Symphony is one of his best.

DEXTER GORDON A Swingin' Affair

Album · 1962 · Hard Bop

Two days after Dexter Gordon recorded "Go" he was back with the same band to record " A Swingin' Affair" The date is August 29, 1962 and although not as popular as "Go" it is just as good. These albums were recorded before Dexter Gordon departed for Europe where he would stay until 1976. Dexter Gordon is one of the greats on Tenor Saxophone and played with the cream, Louis Armstrong, Fletcher Henderson, Charlie Parker, Harry Edison and Nat King Cole to name just a few. Sonny Clarke whom you could almost describe as the Blue Note house pianist at this time contributed to so many of their albums in the companys history as leader and sideman from this period. Butch Warren is on Bass and he also could be described the same as Sonny as an in house muscian for Blue Note and played with so many jazz artists signed to the label.He first recorded with Kenny Dorham and played with with so many of the greats as well, Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk just to mention two. On Drums we have Billy Higgins and he played with them all as well and went on to particapate in over 300 recordings before he left us in 2001. This band had chops.

''Soy Califa" penned by Dexter has a Latin feel with Billy commencing on drums with the band and Dexter coming in to establish the theme by inserting pieces from two tunes and then Dexter is off with a stunning solo, Sonny on piano with that fabulous technique is next Billy Higgins has a quick one on drums and with the rythmn section keeping things moving we have some great jazz. Next one along is Dexter and the band doing " Don't Explain" the Billy Holiday song and Dexter puts his stamp on this beautifully played ballad. He sure knew how to play ballads and will always be the best saxophone for my ears in this format. "You Stepped Out of a Dream" and we are back to the Latin vibe with Dexter giving us another of those solos and Sonny Clarke gives us one little pearler as well. With the next composition " The Backbone" we have quite a catchy theme. Written by Butch Warren who is on bass and quite a brisk number with some great play within. Track five "(It Will Have to Do) Until the Real thing Comes Along" is another gorgeous ballad form Dexter.Last up we get another Dexter Gordon composition "McSplivens" which moves along quite nicely as the band with Dexter seem to be having a real good time with some fine blowing from Dexter's tenor.

Another classic Jazz album from Dexter Gordon as they all were at Blue note but this one followed "Go" which many consider the best but really they are just as good as each other.Personally I think a 'Swingin' Affair" is a little better as I play this more. It must be good if my dog runs in and sits with ears pricked as I finish off. Masterpiece in Jazz with two votes from down here as the album finishes.
