That sound! From the first note, Dexter pulls you in with that big, beautiful sound.  This is romantic jazz tenor ballad playing at its finest.

The tune, Where Are You? was written in 1937 by Jimmy McHugh and Harold Adamson for the film, “Top of the Town.” Dexter Gordon recorded this version in August 1962. It’s worth noting that Sonny Rollins also recorded this tune in February of that year for his “The Bridge” album.

One more solo to go on the Go! album. Coming up soon with be Part 6 of 6 – “Three O’Clock In The Morning.”
