4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE
 
This release includes the complete original 1960 album The Resurgence of Dexter Gordon (Jazzland JLP29). This LP marks the saxophonist’s first recording since 1955 and Gordon’s sole recorded collaboration with pianist Dolo Coker (who composed four of the tunes from the album). As a bonus, six out of the seven tracks from an interesting Gordon session (Dexter doesn’t play a solo on the omitted track) recorded five years earlier. It presents exactly the same instrumentation of tenor sax, trombone, trumpet and rhythm section, and features such stars as Frank Rosolino and Conte Candoli.

DEXTER GORDON, tenor sax
RICHARD BOONE, trombone (out on 5)
MARTIN BANKS, trumpet (out on 5)
