The third of three CDs taken from tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon’s appearances at the 1975 Zurich Jazz Festival has more variety than the other two. There are previously unissued versions of “Tenor Madness” and “Days of Wine and Roses” (the latter has a guest appearance by trumpeter Joe Newman), tender ballad renditions of “Didn’t We” and “Sophisticated Lady,” an effective vocal by Gordon on “Jelly Jelly,” and a rollicking rendition of “Rhythm-A-Ning.” With pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Alex Riel offering strong support, Dexter Gordon is heard in enthusiastic, hard-swinging form.
