Sax on the Web Portal - Dexter Gordon in Finland 1971

  • 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.

    Confession A Lacquer Snob I may be

    A confession: I've come to realize something potentially ugly about myself: I hold a deep rooted lacquer prejudice . I own & love old horns with absolutely no shine & actually resemble a stove pipe....
