While in Europe, tenor-sax-great Dexter Gordon recorded many sessions with pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pedersen and drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath. All are worth acquiring and this one is no exception. In addition to three of his originals (including the title tune), the quartet performs the old bop line “Wee-Dot” and Horace Silver’s “Strollin” while the ballad “Old Folks” is taken as an emotional Gordon-Pedersen duet.
