Newly Discovered Tokyo Quartet Performance from 1975!

Elemental Music presents a newly discovered and previously unissued quartet performance by the great Dexter Gordon. Recorded at Yubin Chokin Hall in Tokyo on October 1, 1975, this astonishing concert marked the genius tenor saxophonist's frst appearance ever in Japan and it finds him backed by an all-star rhythm section of Kenny Drew on piano, Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen on bass, and Albert Tootie Heath on drums. The gatefold 180g vinyl pressing includes a 16-page booklet with special essays by famed jazz producer Michael Cuscuna and by Dexter's widow, Maxine Gordon"Dexter's playing was often pure genius regardless of the circumstances, but when he had that magic combination of players behind him, everything was possible," writes Cuscuna. "This Tokyo appearance is the last known recording of the Drew-Orsted-Pederson-Heath rhythms section."
