Dexter Gordon, Montreux 1970: Body and Soul

Here’s a small clip that I just uploaded as a Christmas present for all you out there. As there have been so many words about Dexter Gordon and his art lets’s go straight to Dexter playing “Body and Soul” at the Montreux Jazz Festival, June 18, 1970.

Enjoy! The personnel is: Dexter Gordon: ts, Junior Mance: p, Martin Rivera: b, Oliver Jackson: d.

All in all more than 45 minutes survived on video from this concert, if you search for “Dexter Gordon Montreux” on youtube, you will find another clip from this Montreux concert, put there by another youtube user. There Dexter is playing “Fried Bananas” – well worth watching as well!
