Movie Reviews

Another dose of Dexter
rayjazz | las vegas, NV | 05/09/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD easily could have been a 5 star, however the visual acuity is substandard for the day. This suprised me as the Iowa concert is of the same year and is quite good. That said, this concert when it comes on is really blurry like 50's video, but just like those, when they move onto the stage it gets acceptable. The artists are the same, this one is 58 min. long with the songs being, in order, On Green Dolphin Street, Polka Dots and Moonbeams, and Tanya. The performance is fantastic, you will not be disappointed, unless you are expecting the exact original versions. As with all great artists, they can not do something the same way over and over, that is stagnation, believe me that is not jazz. As a Dexter fan I wouldn't do without this one, in spite of it's short-
comings. Until we can time travel, this is what we have."

"Dexter Gordon and his support players (George Cables on piano, Rufus Reid bass, Eddie Gladen drums) all perform at their best here. This DVD contains more pieces from the same 1979 concert at San Francisco's Maintenance Shop that was released by Rhapsody Films as The Dexter Gordon Quartet. That's right--more pieces, not the same ones. And the notes on the back provide a little more detail than on the old VHS tape. If you enjoyed Dexter Gordon's music, or his performance in Round Midnight, then this is for you. He was one of the great bebop tenor sax players."
