Dexter Gordon - A Swingin' Affair (Blue Note 80)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Just 2 days after saxophonist Dexter Gordon recorded his classic album 'GO!' in August 1962, he brought the same quartet with pianist Sonny Clark, bassist Butch Warren, and drummer Billy Higgins back into Rudy Van Gelder's studio to record the equally sublime 'A Swingin Affair'.
All the joy and beauty of the great tenor man's music can be found in the irrepressible opener Soy Califa, a Gordon original that moves deftly between Latin and swing rhythms as Dex holds forth with his commanding horn. The feeling of the music is reflected perfectly in Reid Miles masterful cover design featuring Francis Wolff's incredible photo.
This Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
