Dexter Gordon's hard-bop classic One Flight Up - one of the finest examples of hard bop jazz ever released on LP. Jack Lubin engineered the session on June 2, 1964 at CBS Studios in Paris. The synergy between Gordon and his fellow trumpeter Donald Byrd, pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Neils-Henning Orsted and drummer Art Taylor is almost unreal in its spiritual connectivity. With only three tunes to fill 36 minutes of music, everyone gets into long, loose grooves, taking you on a ride that is both swinging, thought provoking and ultimately rapturous. The 3 tracks - and especially the lovely, Byrd-composed 18-minute jam Tanya - display confident rhythmic invention, inspired solos and scintillating late-night mood. Do not miss this Blue Note classic.
