An unusual set for both Dexter and Blue Note first, because the set was recorded in Europe (not at Rudy Van Gelders), and second because the tracks are all quite long!

Sales Information:

The album was recorded in Paris, and is cut in an open-ended format that's very much in the mode that Gordon would later use on late 60s and early 70s sessions for European labels. The group features (then) local contemporaries Kenny Drew on piano, and Niels Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass -- and is rounded out by Donald Byrd on trumpet and Art Taylor on drums. Tracks are long, but not meanderingly so -- and feature a great mix of Blue Note hardbop, with some of the "roomier" recordings that were given to American players in Europe. Side one features an extended reading of Donald Byrd's amazing composition "Tanya", and other tracks include Kenny Drew's "Coppin' The Haven", and a version of "Darn That Dream" [txt from ]
