Dexter Gordon Denmark 1967

Got into him in high school and felt like I "got it" immediately. That big sound. His laconic way of walking, talking, AND playing!
Here he is with a fantastic band in Europe. Tootie Heath smokes the whole set, and it's interesting how he plays on a lot of tunes that were recorded with other drummers, and makes them his own!
Everything that's great about music, and nothing that isn't! Enjoy!
