Dexter Gordon Soy Califa: Live From Magleaas Højskole 1967 on Limited Edition 180g LP

Soy Califa captures Dexter Gordon at the height of his expatriate career, in a working quartet featuring longtime confrere, pianist Kenny Drew, alongside bassist Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath. Recorded in 1967 at a Copenhagen high school where the quartet led master classes, this is the Gordon of such famed live dates as the Montmartre recordings (issued on Black Lion) and the Zurich Jazz Festival (issued on SteepleChase).

Released on the British archival imprint Gearbox, this brief set tears through the Gordon original title track and the Gene Ammons/Sonny Stitt vehicle "Blues Up and Down," as well as a biting rendition of "The Shadow of Your Smile." "Blues Up and Down" is, unsurprisingly, the meat and Heath's overdriven ride cymbal stokes Gordon's wry, liquid phrases into buoyantly hot, rough energy. 

NHøP is a warmtoned bulwark as Drew's insistent, bright funk maintains a harmonic anchor and the performance gives ample weight to the phrase free within the tradition. Curated, analogue mastered and cut at Gearbox Studio.
