Dexterity - tribute to a jazz legend
Four Danish jazz profiles take you on a musical stroll with Dexter Gordon's most popular songs as well as stories about the colorful artist and his intense and deeply original saxophone playing.
Dexter Gordon was a trendsetter and storyteller on the saxophone. His playful and imaginative style has influenced generations of saxophonists from the bebop of the 40s to the present day.
During his stay in Copenhagen from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s, Dexter Gordon also played a very special role in the development of Danish jazz.
Jens Jefsen, who delivers the swinging bass lines in Dexterity, regularly played with Dexter Gordon as a young man and will tell entertaining first-hand anecdotes as part of the concert.
All in all, the audience is taken on an entertaining musical and anecdotal journey into Dexter Gordon's exciting universe.
For the concert at the Piano Academy, Cesar Joaniquet will be playing the saxophone.
