A previously unissued Dexter Gordon concert recorded (in superb stereo) in Germany in 1974.

This was the first live performance by the NDR band, formerly known as the NDR Studio Band, conducted here by Bosnian trumpeter Dusko Goykovich, who also acted as MC and arranger. The band features guests : Herb Geller, Slide Hampton, Horace Parlan, Tony Inzalaco and Goykovich himself.

New and careful remastered sound, the range of styles displayed moves from somewhat funky tunes like Horace Silver's Psychedelic Sally or Goykovich's own What Kind of Blues to classic jazz compositions by Duke Ellington and Luis Russell, more in the classic swing orchestra tradition.
