5.0 out of 5 stars Any Dexter Is Good Dexter May 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
"Go" is widely reputed to be Dexter's best Blue Note album, and his best overall. But, in truth, any of his Blue Notes are extremely high quality, and this is no exception. Lovely post-bop blowing, and the rhythm section is faultless. Nobody plays like this anymore. The fact that I found this CD for $2.99 in a Florida used CD store makes me feel like I found buried treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Classic Blue Note by Dex June 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After a brief absence, it is great to have "Dexter Calling" returned to the Blue Note catalog via the RVG series. The albums Dexter Gordon made for Blue Note in the 60s revived his career, and I believe they are his greatest lasting achievement. Since Dex had left the U.S. for Europe, he made his first four Blue Note albums in pairs during trips stateside. "Dexter Calling" and "Doin' Alright" were recorded days apart using different lineups, but getting the same excellent results, with the former only slightly behind in terms of overall quality. From the opening smooth bars of "Soul Sister," the band of Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers and Phily Joe Jones backs Dex with power and finesse. This rhythm trio knew how to treat a great tenor player -- they were responsible for backing 'Trane on "Blue Train" (see my review). My personal favorite song from the album is "Ernie's Tune," a lovely ballad that alternates between passion and tension for striking results. In conclusion, when Dexter's calling, we should all come over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid throughout August 9, 2004
Format:Audio CD
With Dexter fronting a rhythm section of Kenny Drew , Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones you would expect nothing less than the results here. The playing is absolutely solid throughout and Dexter's tone and improvisational skill are both in full effect. There isn't one oustanding track in the sense that all of the selections are deftly handled by this quartet of consummate professionals. Nothing more nothing less.
