Bop singer Eddie Jefferson and trumpeter Woody Shaw join Gordon and his quartet (pianist George Cables, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Eddie Gladden) on "Diggin' In" and "It's Only a Paper Moon" and Gordon takes Thelonious Monk's ballad "Ruby My Dear" as his feature. Everything works quite well on this diverse but consistent LP, one of Dexter Gordon's later efforts.

Great Encounters (1978). Album by Dexter Gordon.

CD reissue of this 1978 album by the Jazz tenor sax man. Features musical assistance from Johnny Griffin, Eddie Jefferson, Woody Shaw, George Cables, Rufus Reid and Eddie Gladden. I had recently forgotten how great Dexter Gordon was and how he impacted the music that I have come to love and cherish so deeply. Great Encounters" came out in 1979, a time when my ears were being perked up by a hosts of artists that includied Woody Shaw, Dexter Gordon and Eddie Jefferson. When this record came out, I thought it was brilliant. Hearing it again on CD reinforced that same opinion. Dexter is in excellent form here and he surrounds himself with a tightly knitted rhythm section.
