Dexter Gordon

I just bought the Mosaic Select complete Keystone Korner recordings. I have a 2LP set but wanted an upgrade to get the 3CD's and spare my LP's.

I listened at the First CD last night and was quite impressed with 'It's you or no one' and 'backstaris/LTD' I will continue listening this weekend but have some remarks :


There must be a lot more recorded since the 3discs are taken from 7 concerts in 1978 -1979. I haven't read the booklet yet but anyone knows if there's still unissued material?

* An Art Pepper Connection :

First ; I really loved the piano player (first thought it was Lightsey then checked the personnel and saw it was George Cables) who around that period was or would become Art Peppers pianoplayer.

The second Pepper connection is the Trane influence on Dexter. Indeed in the 60's Dexter underwent some Trane influence as did Art Pepper. Who didn't in those days? Anyway i don't mind for Dexters way of playing. As much i like his 60's style i do love his 70's and 80's way as well...

I hope this post doesn't ramble to much, just some ideas that came up last night and early morning

Have a nice weekend you all !!!
