Dexter Gordon is one of those jazz giants I have only started looking (listening) into...
They say he was influential on Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and other seminal tenorists (see Nat Hentoff's lovely liner notes), but Dexter, judging from this album, can hold his own in any company. This album is BEAUTIFUL; mostly anchored in hard-bop, but diverse, with blues, ballads and lot of drive. The band is excellent, no small thanks to Slide Hampton
who played some mean trombone, arranged the stuff and wrote some of the songs.
But, in addition to originals, there are some trully magnificent readings of jazz standards - I can't say which is better: uptempo version of "You don't know what love is" or quartet version of "Shadow of your smile"...

This music, recorded in 1969 is timeless in the best sense of the word, accesible to jazz fanatics and general audinces (IMHO).

What do you get when Dexter Gordon and other gifted jazzmen walk into a recording studio to cut an album? Answer: brilliant jazz. This LP, recorded by the German MPS label in 1969, is a standout in Gordon's discography in that it featured a front line of three horns. Usually, Gordon was recorded with just a rhythm section as a quartet. Occasionally, trumpeters of the stature of Freddie Hubbard, Donald Byrd or Woody Shaw joined him. But a sextet format with tenor sax, trumpet, and trombone was a rarity. This band was fabulous. Kenny Drew (p), Niels-Henning Orsted-Pedersen (b), and Art Taylor (dr) were musicians Gordon had worked and recorded with often. All three of them played with him, for instance, on the celebrated Blue Note album, One Flight Up. Their interaction as a unit on this LP is particularly strong. Dizzy Reece had a bright, burnished sound that always pleases. After he had recorded several albums for Blue Note as a leader, Reece returned to Europe and his releases in the context of a small-group setting became infrequent. His presence on this session is therefore to be celebrated. Finally, we get Slide Hampton on trombone. He arranged the album, composed three of the tracks, and was actually listed as co-leader of the session. Hampton had the skill to arrange the sextet so that all the musicians make the transition easily from the roles of soloing to supporting each other and back. As one listens to the CD, one gets the impression that all six of these musicians were listening to each others' performances intently, and enjoying them totally. Get the CD and you'll know why. Highly recommended.

Classic album. Great arrangements and performances. Some of Slide Hampton's best recorded work. Great rhythm section and classic Dexter. A must have.

i love this...i only have it on vinyl and am currently waiting for it to arrive on cd...the way slide handles that horn, you'd SWEAR it was a flute! this album is a sure bet, if just for "you don't know what love is" alone...i mean, they actually sped it up and it sounds DELICIOUS!
