Blue Note | July 27, 2004 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
The title of this Blue Note set fit perfectly at the time, for tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon was making the first of three successful comebacks. Largely neglected during the 1950s, Gordon's Blue Note recordings (of which this was the first) led to his rediscovery. The tenor is teamed with the young trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, pianist Horace Parlan, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Al Harewood for a strong set of music highlighted by "You've Changed" (which would become a permanent part of Dexter's repertoire), "Society Red" (a blues later used in the film 'Round Midnight), and "It's You or No One." The 2004 Rudy Van Gelder edition features wonderfully remastered sound by Van Gelder, who was the original engineer for the session in 1961. The set features one alternate take of "For Regulars Only," which was not included on the original LP. ~ Scott Yanow
