Description

Dexter Gordon's European period (1962-1976) was mostly based in his beloved Denmark, where he led an active professional career and enjoyed a harmonious private life, arriving in Europe after some turbulent times in the States he found new energy in performing and recording to build a large part of his discography at the top of his artistic strength.

The recording output, however, during 1962 and 1964 was scarce and this album recorded in Copenhagen (1962) and Oslo (1963) is an adept document of the fresh start by the towering master of the tenor saxophone.

"The star billing, as always, goes to one of jazz's master storytellers, Dexter Gordon; the performances contained here, which set the scene for the dramatic renaissance of his career, fill in one of the long missing chapters." - Neil Tesser
