  • Dexter Gordon in Finland 1971

    As a young guy I was lucky to meet and photograph Dexter Gordon when he was playing a gig in Finland, Vaasa Youth Festival on 19 June 1971. Dexter is still one of my favorite sax players.

    More jazzy pictures from the festival in my blog: http://wp.me/p1jVlh-f2.

    Great, glad you enjoyed them that much. I knew if anybody would it would be you.

    Re: Brilhart Level-Air vs. Runyon Quantum

    Made a reversal correction to the notes: Level Air has the cylindrical baffle, not the Quantum.

    I love this one especially, that fan blowing on the sax gives it that really cool tremolo affect, outstanding performance!

    ps

    I hope big Jay Thomas gets his head round this. ;->
