Dexter Gordon always played with a melancholy smile in his sound. The joy he felt in playing his tenor saxophone was apparent, as was his huge tone and playful conception. Gordon was making a major comeback after spending several years in prison on a narcotics conviction. After being one of the primary pacesetters among tenors during the bebop era, Dexter had been largely forgotten in the 1950s due to several other periods of involuntary incarceration. But after the release of this 1961 album with the young trumpeter Freddie Hubbard and the Horace Parlan Trio, Dexter was here to stay. Just listen to him caressing You've Changed, introducing Society Red and sounding jubilant on I Was Doing All Right. Dexter Gordon was feeling joyful, feeling healthy and content to let every note tell the story. The Definitive Versions of Blue Note are on XRCD24... Listen & Compare! Plays on standard CD players. Review All three of these recordings (the others being Freddie Hubbard's Open Sesame and Jackie McLean's Bluesnik) offer state-of-the-art digital sound. The use of the XRCD24 process takes them to the very heights of Red Book CD's capabilities. The drums have snap, the cymbals shimmer, and the bass deep and woody resonance. The piano, not engineer Rudy Van Gelder's strong point, displays realistic percussion - the hammer-hitting-the-string sound of the real thing. The horns have both brassy bite and, in the case of the saxophones, a reedy quality. There is enough space and detail to satisfy even the most persnickety listeners.If you love Blue Note jazz but not the sound of Blue Note's RVG CD reissues (you're not alone), these discs - along with all of the others in Audio Wave's growing series - will let you realize everything that Blue Note had to offer musically and sonically. --John Crossett, The Audio Beat, January 25. 2011
