That sound

Back in college, Dexter Gordon's album "Homecoming" was one of my faves. That fat, beautiful tenor sound, unmistakable, the way he played behind the beat, almost lazy, yet still full of energy and authority. An underrated master.

Update: Title change because "the sound" already taken by Stan Getz. Hat tip to TC.

  4. Not that Dexter Gordon is shabby. Underrated and overshadowed by the more accessible jazz men.
