180-gram LP pressed at Pallas in Germany
Recorded live in July of 1967 at the legendary Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen, this selection finds tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon and his quartet (pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pederson and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath) in top form.
Two of the standards on this hard-swinging set ("But Not for Me" & "Take the 'A' Train") are more than 10 minutes long, allowing Gordon to stretch out creatively. The historic recording finally gets its vinyl debut with this 180-gram audiophile-grade Pallas pressing.
1. But Not For Me
