Although he first recorded in the late-1940s, Dexter Gordon's Blue Note debut Doin' Allright — recorded and released in 1961 — marked a rebirth for the great tenor saxophonist after a decade in which drug addiction and legal troubles limited his output.
But his Blue Note years put him back on top with a run of essential albums that stand as classics of the jazz canon. Doin' Allright featured a top flight quintet with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, pianist Horace Parlan, bassist George Tucker, and drummer Al Harewood on a set that presented bluesy hard bop originals like "Society Red" and highlighted Gordon's stunning balladry on the standard "You've Changed."
This Blue Note 80 vinyl edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Optimal in Germany.
