Description
On these 1963 sessions in Paris, tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon demonstrates his prowess at interpreting the classics. The rendition of Charlie Parker's "Scrapple from the Apple" is every bit the equal of the original, and George Gershwin's "Our Love Is Here to Stay" gets an inspired bebop treatment, while Gordon's take on Dizzy Gillespie's "A Night in Tunisia" was hailed as "one of his finest performances on record" by the The Penguin Guide to Jazz. "Like Someone in Love" is a showcase for pianist Bud Powell and bassist Pierre Michelot, and the quartet clearly relishes "Willow Weep for Me."

"Gordon is at the very top of his game here. His playing is crisp, tight, and full of playful fury. Powell ... never sounded better than he does in this session.... The rhythm section is close-knit and stop-on-a-dime accurate."—Allmusic.com
