In 'Round Midnight, real-life jazz legend Dexter Gordon brilliantly portrays the fictional tenor sax player Dale Turner, a musician slowly losing the battle with alcoholism, estranged from his family, and hanging on by a thread in the 1950's New York jazz world. Dale gets an offer to play in Paris, where, like many other black American musicians at the time, he enjoys a respect for his humanity that is not based upon the color of his skin. A Parisian man who is obsessed with Turner's music befriends him and attempts to save Turner from himself. Although for Dale the damage is already done, his poignant relationship with the man and his young daughter re-kindles his spirit and his music as the end draws near.

Dexter Gordon is a legendary figure in jazz for many reasons. He was among the first to transfer the characteristics and style of bebop innovator Charlie Parker to the tenor saxophone. His career spanned from 1940 until his death in 1990. He played the lead role in the French/American film "'Round Midnight" in 1986 (and got an Oscar nomination). He possessed one of the biggest, most durable, romantic (without being soppy), swaggering (without excess) and recognizable tenor sounds in jazz history. No innovator, but a stylist of the highest order.

In a social atmosphere of jazz, one interfaces with people from all walks of life. One such person is the late Robert (Bob) Colley. A friendship was spawned between Bob and I, as he was very helpful in so many ways to so many musicians. Bob had gotten involved with booking a jazz club in Newark N.J. and asked me if I’d be interested in accompanying a singer friend Naima Shamborguer from Detroit. Unfortunately the club decided to discontinue its jazz policy and the engagement didn’t happen. However greater things prevailed, and a friendship spawned between Naima, her husband George and I. The wonderful couple made a trip to my home in Baltimore and after a great seafood lunch at one of Baltimore’s great restaurants, we went back to my home and sat around the piano playing and singing.

Go is the tenth studio album by jazz musician Dexter Gordon, recorded on August 27, 1962 and released in the same year on Blue Note. According to the liner notes by Ira Gitler, this session was "not recorded in a nightclub performance but, in its informal symmetry, it matches the relaxed atmosphere that the best of those made in that manner engender. Everyone was really together, in all the most positive meanings of that word." It was recorded by Rudy Van Gelder at the Van Gelder Studio in Englewood Cliffs. Since its release, Go has received very positive reviews from critics, with Allmusic giving it a five star rating. The album was re-released in March 1999 as part of Blue Note's RVG Series, produced by Michael Cuscuna.

Jazz Undulation is an exciting live album that captured tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin in an interesting and unusual setting. Bassist Jimmy Woode and drummer Kenny Clarke were frequent collaborators of Griffin's at the time, all three living in Europe and being members of the Clarke-Boland Big Band. Pianist Hampton Hawes was visiting Europe at the time, and probably just happened to meet them in Rome.

Dexter Gordon had such a colorful and eventful life (with three separate comebacks) that his story would make a great Hollywood movie. The top tenor saxophonist to emerge during the bop era and possessor of his own distinctive sound, Gordon sometimes was long-winded and quoted excessively from other songs, but he created a large body of superior work and could battle nearly anyone successfully at a jam session.

A play and an alto saxophonist pulled Dexter Gordon out of West Coast obscurity in 1960 and helped revive the bebop pioneer's career. The play was The Connection, which included a performing jazz band in its cast and inspired a classic original score from Freddie Redd as well as subsequent compositions by Kenny Drew, Cecil Payne, and Cecil Taylor. Gordon was the play's musical director in his hometown of Los Angeles, and some of Gordon's score is documented here. Cannonball Adderley produced the session (and many others for Riverside/Jazzland at the time).
