Dexter Gordon

Dexter Gordon has been played on NTS in shows including Crossed Wires w/ Amanda Siegel, featured first on 12 July 2015. Songs played include A Night In Tunisia, A Day In Vienna and One Finger Snap.

Dexter Gordon (February 27, 1923 – April 25, 1990) was an American jazz tenor saxophonist. He was among the earliest tenor players to adapt the bebop musical language of people such as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and Bud Powell to the instrument. His studio and live performance career spanned over 40 years.

Gordon's height was 6 feet 6 inches (198 cm), so he was also known as "Long Tall Dexter"…
