What is different about this set (recorded in a particularly busy year for Dexter Gordon) is that the veteran tenor is joined by a trio (guitarist Philip Catherine, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Billy Higgins) that does not include a pianist. Otherwise, the music is at the same high quality level and in the same modern bop genre as one would expect. In addition to one of his originals and Slide Hampton’s “Yesterday’s Mood,” Gordon stretches out on some standards, making a classic statement on the ballad “When Sunny Gets Blue.” All of his SteepleChase albums (particularly those from the 1975-76 period) are well worth acquiring.
