More Than You Know

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Dexter Gordon's SteepleChase recordings of the early- to mid-'70s are among the most rewarding of his career. This particular session which finds Gordon backed by a string orchestra arranged by Palle Mikkelborg is one of the lesser items from this fertile period. Dexter is in memorable form on "Naima" and "More than You Know" but the backup orchestra has little interplay with Gordon and the lush charts offer few surprises. This set does not quite live up to its potential although Dexter Gordon fans will still find moments to enjoy.
