Dexter Gordon played a Conn 10M 'Ladyface' tenor until it was stolen in a Paris airport in 1961. I sold him his Selmer Mark VI when I worked for Selmers. He loved the Hot Club style and so I have put together this tribute including both styles.   Keywords: bebop, blues, boogie, boogie-woogie, bop, fusion jazz, hot jazz, improvisational music, jive, ragtime, swing, dexter Gordon, Paris hot club

Long Description: Dexter Our Man in Paris., Jazz Music, Cabaret Music, film music, royalty free music and website music

Keywords: Gordon was born and grew up in Los Angeles, where his father was a doctor who counted Duke Ellington and Lionel Hampton among his patients. He played clarinet from the age of 13, before switching to saxophone (initially alto, then tenor) at 15. While still at school, he was playing in bands with such contemporaries as Chico Hamilton and Buddy Collette. Between 1940 and 1943, Gordon was a member of Lionel Hampton's band, playing in a saxophone section alongside Illinois Jacquet and Marshall Royal. In 1943 he made his first recordings under his own name, alongside Nat Cole and Harry Edison. During 1943-44 he featured in the Louis Armstrong and Fletcher Henderson bands, before joining Billy Eckstine. After that, he spent 15 years in Europe, mostly in Paris and Copenhagen, where he played regularly with fellow expatriate jazzmen such as Bud Powell, Ben Webster, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, Kenny Drew, Horace Parlan and Billy Higgins.
