At 6 feet, 6 inches tall, Dexter Gordon was both literally and figuratively a giant of the tenor saxophone. One of the earliest tenor men to adapt the language of bebop, Dexter was an important early influence on both John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins. In a career that spanned more than 40 years, Dexter created an immediately recognizable sound, distinguishable by his large, dark tone, unique sense of swing, and playful melodic sense.

In this special program, saxophonist Jamel Mitchell will draw from Gordon's iconic recordings, performing classics such as "Fried Bananas," "Second Balcony Jump," "Cheesecake," "Laura" and others.

Featuring:
Jamel Mitchell, tenor saxophone
Keith L. Brown, piano
Jon Hamar, bass
Keith R. Brown, drums  

The show is all ages, fully seated, with a box lunch provided by our award-winning restaurant, Cafe 4. Please call ahead if you have any dietary restrictions. 865.544.4199.
