Dexter Gordon Quartet - At The Subway Club 1973 - 2CD Digipack Edition
NEWLY DISCOVERED PERFORMANCE
ALL TRACKS PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED
Elemental Music presents a complete previously unissued quartet performance by the great Dexter Gordon. This fascinating concert finds Gordon at the Subway jazz club in Köln, Germany, on September 11, 1973, playing along Irv Rochlin on piano, Henk Haverhoek on bass, and Tony Inzalaco on drums. This edition contains a 16-page booklet with rare photographs, and special essays by famed jazz producer Michael Cuscuna and by Dexter s widow, Maxine Gordon. The set also includes four bonus tracks, also previously unreleased, consisting of 1965 and 1971 performances by Gordon respectively in Stuttgart and Den Haag.
“This pan European tour with Dexter Gordon moves backwards in time from 1973 to 1965. What is striking here is that through three rhythm sections in three cities over eight years with varied repertoire, the force of Dexter’s musical personality gives this entire set an uncanny cohesion.” Michael Cuscuna (September 2018).
“What makes these recordings special is the way Dexter plays live without thinking about the possibility that this would be recorded and eventually released for the world to hear. Hearing him play in these years is an extraordinary gift for us all. Enjoy the music.” Maxine Gordon (October 2018).
