Overview

One of two albums recorded on the set of the movie Round Midnight, The Other Side of Round Midnight features tenor-saxophonist Dexter Gordon (the star of the film) in a minor role, playing on just four of the nine numbers. However, the performances also feature Wayne Shorter on tenor and soprano, trumpeters Palle Mikkelborg and Freddie Hubbard, pianists Herbie Hancock and Cedar Walton, guitarist John McLaughlin, bassists Pierre Michelot, Ron Carter and Mads Vinding, drummers Billy Higgins and Tony Williams and (on "What Is This Thing Called Love") singer Bobby McFerrin, all of whom have their moments, both historically and musically. Not essential but interesting.
