SCCD 31224 After Hours / Dexter Gordon Quintet
At the time this album was released originally on LP in 1986, Dexter was attracting renewed interest from the public by receiving nomination for an Academy Award for his performance (as an actor) of the leading role in the feature film “Round Midnight”.
Though Dexter spent his last years in USA after his great come-back signing with CBS, his prime time as a musician was from his European days. This recording includes some of his best ever playings.
“ Some might criticise that Dexter put out too many albums but this recording I cannot do without …” (Jyllandsposten)
