Dexter Gordon, Legendary Tenor Sax, in Photographs

As a tenor saxophone legend of the be-bop era, Dexter Gordon was an integral part of the Central Avenue music scene. Whether he was battling at a jam session or recording with fellow legends Dizzy Gillespie or Nat King Cole, Gordon was charismatic and innovative. He influenced legions of up-and-coming musicians, including John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins. Gordon was known for his genial and humorous stage presence. "Long Tall Dexter" as he was known, was an advocate of playing to communicate with the audience and one of his signature moves was to recite lyrics from each ballad before playing it. Each image here is available as a limited edition fine art print.
