SCCD 36038 Dexter Gordon Quartet “Satin Doll”

Another magical summer night of 1967 from the Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen

finds Dexter Gordon in company of drummer Art Taylor who heats up the evening’s temperature.

Dex's idiosyncratic spoken intros to tunes like "I Should Care" and "Come Rain or Come Shine" are charming, and the gritty soulfulness of his playing reminds us just how much we miss the greats of his generation. They don't make 'em like this anymore .” (JazzTimes’ Chris Kelsey on Loose Walk SCCD 36032)

…a welcome program that finds Gordon in a limber and exploratory mode. Foibles in fidelity aside, Dex aficionados will be sold on the disc's face value. But casual listeners will probably also be pleasingly surprised by the calibre of this classic conclave .” (Derek Taylor of AllAboutJazz on Lady Bird SCCD 36035)
