Description

Not forsaking Europe entirely, after his return home from to the U.S. in 1977, Gordon returned for gigs like the inspired set captured here at the Espace Pierre Cardin (Théâtre de la Ville) in Paris in September 25, 1977. Sharing the stage with him that night are the well-known rhythm section of French bassist Pierre Michelot and American drummer Kenny Clarke.

What makes this performance unique is that it is the only known recording of Gordon playing with one of the stalwarts of bebop piano, Al Haig. A constant presence on 52nd street during the embryonic days of bebop in the late 1940s, Haig's career had gone fallow by the 1960s. At the time of this performance, he was experiencing a much-deserved rediscovery.
