|Dexter Gordon was born on February 27, 1923/|
I can't let this day pass without celebrating Dexter Gordon, one of my favorite jazz musicians.
Smooth, cool, and sophisticated, Dexter's music could enflame the passions while chilling the blues. He could lift up the heart while casting down the troubles. In short, the soulful sounds of his saxophone were transcendent.
