Gordon was justly famous for his thrilling, non-stop Bop jams but he was equally renowned for his tenor sax's rich, searing tone and his soul-deep reading of ballads. This exquisite collection is drawn from his peerless early 1960s Blue Note period. It features brilliant sidemen and will get even the hardest of hearts beating again

Dexter Gordon was one of the first graduates of the American Swing and BeBop scene, and would go on to not only develop and sustain the movement, but redefined much of the jazz vocabulary we today, take almost for granted. His discography is immense, and the number of first rate talent he’s worked with is both impressive, and staggering. Dexter Gordon is one of the few in jazz who’s managed to create his own trademark, a trademark that defines not only an era in this country, but one that’s so impressive, that it’s still being presented note for note to this very day.

Ballads is as sleepy, smoke filled, and haunting as the album jacket suggests ... where Dexter, at his peak, and just returning from Europe, hosts the likes of Butch Warren, Billy Higgins, Sonny Clark, and Donald Byrd [from a Paris gig in ’64], locking in tight, yet leaving atmospheric room to breathe, and delivering low keyed, unexpected sonic punctuations that on first listen, you’ll only catch in the rearview mirror.

There’s almost nothing provocative or pretentious here, and that’s a good thing, making for a smooth unfettered evening in front of the stereo with a glass of single malt, oversized coffee table magazines, unbuttoned collars, and stoking feet.
