Dexter Gordon - Dexter Rides Again + 3 - LP -

Price per Unit (stuk): €13.95


Original Album + Bonus Tracks On 180g Vinyl LP!

Taken from three separate sessions from 1945-'47, Dexter Rides Again showcases prime bebop sides Gordon cut for Savoy. The album kicks off with "Dexter's Riff", a cooking bebop number with a memorable tagline performed in unison by Leo Parker and Dexter Gordon. "Settin' the Pace Parts 1 & 2" is the longest piece on the album, giving the two saxophonists more room to stretch out. "So Easy" is a slower bluesier track, which ends the 1947 session. Abetted by a collective cast including the fine, yet rarely heard trumpeter Leonard Hawkins, baritone saxophonist Leo Parker, pianists Tadd Dameron and Bud Powell and drummers Max Roach and Art Blakey.

"For those interested in where elements of both Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane's distinct style came from, check out these fine Gordon sides; besides the history lesson on wax, there's a consistent run of top-notch bebop sides to enjoy."
