Overview

Dexter Gordon and his European quartet (pianist Tete Montoliu, bassist Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen and drummer Alex Riel) played a three-month engagement at Copenhagen's Montmartre Club during the summer of 1964. The group had an hour-long radio broadcast every other Thursday night, and the results have been released by SteepleChase on six CDs. Cheesecake was the first, and its follow-up, King Neptune, features the quartet and the great tenor stretching out on "Satin Doll," "Body and Soul," "I Want to Blow Now" (which Gordon briefly sings), and the otherwise unknown title cut, a Gordon original that was never recorded elsewhere. All of the releases in this valuable Dexter in Radioland series are recommended.
