Tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon is a jazz legend and one of the most fascinating musicians of the bebop and hard bop eras. Over a career spanning more than 40 years, Dexter Gordon rarely released a bad or even mediocre album. He was skilled at walking the line between accessible and experimental and consistently played soulful, interesting and complex music. In the middle of his career, Dexter Gordon, like many jazz musicians of the time, travelled to Europe where he would live and work for fourteen years. Then, in the late 1970s, he returned to America for a rapturous homecoming. His return to the States, along with the work of Art Blakey during the 1970s, is credited as being instrumental in the revival of acoustic jazz following the fusion jazz era.
