Dexter Gordon Quartet, live from Keystone Korner, San Francisco Bay Area, December 1982

This great saxophonist's long and remarkable career saw him perform alongside Lester Young, Lionel Hampton, Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong, John Coltrane and many others.

After a long spell in Europe, he returned to the US in 1976 and was named Down Beat Musician of the Year in 1978 and 1980. This superb set was broadcast on KCSM in 1982 and finds him on vintage form, even throwing in some festive standards.

It's presented here with background notes and images.
