“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).
