Peter Wockner
jazzandbeyond, April 2008

When not riding his bicycle around Copenhagen, Gordon was, at 40, touring Europe using pick-up rhythm sections playing a repertoire steeped in the history of jazz. Holland 1964 and the relaxed, handsome Gordon, (epitome of cool) enters the cosy club late, the rhythm section already on stage, wearing a trench coat through the haze of cigarette smoke, gives a charming dignified introduction to 'A Night in Tunisia'; a reflection of his stately tenor sound. Switzerland 1963 was a concert hall but with a milk bottle sounding piano while Belgium 1964's 'Body and Soul' with Art Taylor on drums is simply a treasure in both picture quality and sound.

Dutch TV footage from the 1964 show captures Gordon at his peak—after incarceration and heroin addiction. This DVD also contains performances of equal excellence in Switzerland in 1963 and Belgium in 1964, and comes with a booklet featuring detailed liner notes and rare photographs.
