Dexter Keith Gordon (1923-1990) is widely remembered for his tremendous magnetism, his sense of style and sophistication, and his broad legendary sound on the saxophone. In addition to his innovative contributions in the world of Jazz, Gordon is still loved and emulated as a result of his iconic presence, which has, for decades, penetrated and influenced the collective psyche of American popular culture. Dexter, by and far, personifies the meaning of such classic vernacular terms as “cool”, “hip”, “slick” and “sharp”. To this day, Dexter Gordon is a brand in and of himself.
