This recording of a Danish TV performance has never been released on vinyl until now. Dexter Gordon is heard at his best and most powerful on these three tracks of the hardest bop, the hippest Afro-inspired music and the most tender of ballads.

Recorded on a hot summer’s day at Magleaas High School with ‘the best rhythm section in Europe’ - pianist Kenny Drew, the 21 year-old double bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Petersen and drummer Albert 'Tootie' Heath. Jazz at its finest.

Mastered and cut using equipment of the highest quality at the Gearbox studio with a Haeco Scully lathe, Westrex RA1700 series amps, Westrex 3DIIIA cutting head Telefunken U73B tube limiter; Maselec master control and equalisation.

“The stuff of legend” - Stuart Nicholson, Jazzwise

“Gearbox has once again done a sterling job of bringing a forgotten gem to the fore” - Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz
