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.

    Re: Guidance on my search for the perfect tenor mouthpiece

    That's just mind boggling! My guess is that's not an exact quote or there is some context being left out. Otherwise, if one of those instructors owns a top quality horn in top playing condition,...
