Additional information

Taken from three separate sessions from 1945-’47, ‘Dexter Rides Again’ showcases prime
bebop sides Gordon cut for Savoy. The album kicks off with “Dexter’s Riff”, a cooking bebop
number with a memorable tagline performed in unison by Leo Parker and Dexter Gordon. “Settin’
the Pace Parts 1 & 2” is the longest piece on the album, giving the two saxophonists more room
to stretch out. “So Easy” is a slower bluesier track, which ends the 1947 session. Abetted by a
collective cast including the fine, yet rarely heard trumpeter Leonard Hawkins, baritone
saxophonist Leo Parker, pianists Tadd Dameron and Bud Powell and drummers Max Roach and
Art Blakey.
