The second of three CDs taken from Gordon’s appearances at the 1975 Montreux Jazz Festival showcases the veteran tenor in peak form. With strong support from the talented rhythm section (pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and drummer Alex Riel), Dexter is particularly exciting on a nearly 15-minute version of “There Is No Greater Love,” “Wave” and Thelonious Monk’s “Rhythm-A-Ning”; the latter two songs were issued for the initial time on this six-song CD reissue. Dexter Gordon is heard throughout at his best.

Bass – Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen
Drums – Alex Riel
