Virtually all of tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon’s SteepleChase recordings find him in prime form. This music, released for the first time in 1995, is a bit unusual in that Gordon (who usually played in a quartet) is joined by the fiery trumpeter Benny Bailey who has a particularly exciting solo on “At Ronnie ‘s.” The obscure European rhythm section is fine in support of the two lead voices who, in addition to “At Ronnie’s,” perform Bill Barron’s “Revelation,” a couple of standards and a two-song ballad medley. Worth picking up.
