Series: Live/DVD Publisher: Jazz Icons Format: DVD Artist: Dexter Gordon
Jazz Icons: Dexter Gordon features three concerts filmed in 1963 and 1964 in Holland, Switzerland and Belgium that highlight the bebop legend's classic style and silky tone.

Features: 24-page booklet; liner notes by Dexter's widow, historian Maxine Gordon; foreword by Michael Cuscuna; cover photo by Francis Wolff; booklet photos by Jan Persson, Lee Tanner, Riccardo Schwamenthal; memorabilia collage; and more. 69 minutes.
