Recorded live in July of 1967 at the legendary Jazzhus Montmartre in Copenhagen, this selection finds tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon and his quartet (pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Niels Pederson and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath) in top form. Two of the standards on this hard-swinging set ("But Not for Me" & "Take the 'A' Train") are over ten minutes long, allowing Gordon to stretch out creatively. The historic recording finally gets its vinyl debut with this 180gram audiophile-grade Pallas pressing.
