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.

    I vote Orsi stencil as well, based on the left hand pinky keys and the bell flare.

    Re: Drake Bari Mouthpiece

    Drake is a medium chamber mouthpiece, the roll over is more in the vein of Meyer Medium than Link, the VCCR II is Lawton B comparable and VCCR I, like a Dukoff.
