BALLADS partially fills this gap and is an excellent introduction to Gordon's tenor artistry. Compiled from a number of mostly '60s Blue Note sessions, these familar standards, including Billie's "Don't Explain" and Sinatra's "I'm A Fool To Want You," are given long and bracing workouts in the modern tenor style. Underrated Gordon might have been, but he was never outdated. The grand finale is an electrifying 16-minute "Body And Soul," recorded live in 1978, which includes a nearly 4-minute unaccompanied cadenza.
Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey between May 6, 1961 and May 27, 1965; CBS Studios, Paris, France on May 23, 1963 and June 2, 1964; live at The Keystone Korner, San Francisco, California on September 16, 1978.
