Label: Dexter Moore

A South Philadelphia native, you could say music is in Dexter's genes. Like many talented musicians, Dexter’s initial exposure began in the church. A product of both ministers and musicians, his dad (a deacon) is a keyboardist/organist, his two brothers are drummers, and his sister sings actively in church. His late mother (an evangelist) also played both the piano and the drums in church.

The harmonically advanced trumpeter Thad Jones is a perfect contrast to the tenor of Dexter Gordon on this enjoyable Prestige LP. Gordon was somewhat forgotten in the United States at the time (his "comeback" was still four years away), but is in excellent form on the four numbers, particularly during a passionate version of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face."

Genre: Jazz, Funk / Soul | Label: Vocalion | Catalog Number: CDSML 8506

Recorded for Mercury in 1976, the Nightflight sessions saw Szabo travelling to Philadelphia's Sigma Sound Studios to make an album indebted to the funky, soulful music of the legendary Philadelphia International Records home to such artists as Teddy Pendergrass, Lou Rawls, Billy Paul, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, The Three Degrees and The O'Jays. Deepening Nightflight's links to The Philadelphia Sound were the musicians accompanying Szabo. The rhythm section comprised members of Instant Funk a group who appeared on many Philadelphia International recordings alongside various studio players, among them keyboardist-composer Dexter Wansel and guitarist-pianist-singer Bunny Sigler who also produced the sessions. The result is a colourful fusion of lush soul music with Szabo's distinctive brand of jazz guitar.
