A well-recorded live date, one of many Gordon did at the Montmartre, this easily ranks as one of Gordon's best, just shy of his magnum opus Homecoming. Sowing the seeds of the sound of Sonny Rollins and using part of Newk's repertoire, Gordon makes these musical statements all his own with a personalized voice free of imitation, but full of melodic hooks and ladders reaching skyward in distinguished, ad hoc fashion.
45rpm Numbered Limited Edition
For the newer student, too young to have heard him when bebop was in flower, these sides offer an indispensable introduction to a man who, in more thanone sense, is a towering musical figure of our time.
From the opening notes of the classic ballad "As Time Goes By," we are fully aware that we're in the presence of a master.
"Cisco Music's vinyl reissue sounds intensely immediate, natural, and palpably "there." Taylor's drums are upfront and relentlessly insistent; Gordon's sax has a wispy, throaty, reverb-encased sound; Pedersen's bass lays deep, earthy, yet elastic roots; Drew's piano is solid yet impressionistic, and Byrd's trumpet is all spit-polished, warm brass. Hands-down, one of the audiophile label's finest efforts." - Wayne Garcia, TAS January 2008
Blue Note Stereo 509992-66072-1-4 Music from EMI
"I’ve heard a lot of Blue Note originals and myriad reissues over the years, but based on the sample test pressings heard so far, none—and I mean none—convey the intensity of living, breathing music-making the way the Music Matter’s Blue Note series does. The sense of air, texture, and dynamic pop in these grooves is astonishing." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound
