GETTIN AROUND Vinyl Record - Gatefold Sleeve, Limited Edition, 180 Gram Pressing, Remastered
Of the many bebop greats who emerged in the mid-1940s, Dexter Gordon was one of the very few (along with Art Blakey and Kenny Dorham) to be a Blue Note artist two decades later. His large sound, ability to play long solos with creativity, and infectiously swinging style made Long Tall Dexter an irresistible force for many years. He fit into the hard bop world as effortlessly as he did in bop and swing settings, infusing the music with humorous song quotes, rousing ideas, and his wonderful tone. No one could out swing Gordon. He had no difficulty keeping up with such younger players as Bobby Hutcherson, Barry Harris and Billy Higgins on 1965's Getting' Around. Dexter's passionate sound the ballads 'Everybody's Somebody's Fool' and 'Who Can I Turn To' and his drive on 'Shiny Stockings' (one of the very few times that this Count Basie-associated song was recorded by a small group) makes Getting' Around memorable from start to finish, demonstrating that Dexter Gordon and the Blue Note label were a magical combination.
