Description

This previously unreleased recording features the legendary saxophonist Dexter Gordon with his quartet, George Cables (piano), Rufus Reid (bass) and Eddie Gladden (drums), captured live at the Chateauvallon Jazz Festival in 1978.

Included in the 2 CD set, is a 16-page booklet containing rare photos, and special essays by famed jazz producer Michael Cuscuna, Penguin Guide to Jazz's Brian Morton and Gordon's widow, Maxine.

"The original quartet was at its peak from its first notes to its last gig, as this concert bears out. Dexter is in a joyous and fiery mood, peppering his solos with outrageous quotes from other songs and stretching out. Few recordings by this amazing foursome have surfaced. This concert is a worthy addition to their discography." Michael Cuscuna
