The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon, with Maxine Gordon
July 19 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Author reading, book signing, and discussion. Sophisticated Giant presents the life and legacy of tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon (1923-1990), one of the major innovators of modern jazz. In a context of biography, history, and memoir, Maxine Gordon has completed the book that her late husband began, weaving his “solo” turns with her voice and a chorus of voices from the past and present.
