Dexter Blows Hot and Cool

Dexter Gordon (ts), Jimmy Robinson (tp), Carl Perkins (p), Leroy Vinnegar (b), Chuck Thompson (d)

Reference: FSRCD 1601

Bar code: 8427328616010

Little was heard of tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon on-record during the 1950s; in fact this somewhat obscure LP was one of Gordon's only three appearances on record (two as a leader) during 1953-1959. He fronts a quintet with pianist Carl Perkins, bassist Leroy Vinnegar, drummer Chuck Thompson, and the forgotten trumpeter Jim Robinson, and sounds pretty strong on the straight-ahead material. This collector's item from a dark period in Dexter Gordon's life has its share of fine music.

"Little was heard of tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon on-record during the 1950s; in fact this somewhat obscure LP was one of Gordon's only three appearances on record (two as a leader) during 1953-1959. He fronts a quintet with pianist Carl Perkins, bassist Leroy Vinnegar, drummer Chuck Thompson, and the forgotten trumpeter Jim Robinson, and sounds pretty strong on the straight-ahead material. Few surprises occur but this collector's item from a dark period in Dexter Gordon's life has its share of fine music."

This is a good example of early Dexter Gordon and some solid west-coast players of the period. It is straight-ahead, no frills stuff, but Gordon's tone is there and the fact this is not a jam session or live date (like some other early sessions) gives it focus and direction."
