Funny, I just clicked to say Dexter and I see above someone else said Dexter. For me, it was the Jazz Moods: Round Midnight compilation of more latter day recordings of ballads - that I believe were largely used in the film Round Midnight starring Dexter Gordon.



I had wanted to get into DG a lot since reading about how Jack Kerouac and Neil Cassady loved him in Kerouac's writings. But I haven't really found the real out bop stuff that Jack describes in his books. I've found Daddy Plays the Horn and the Live at the Village Vanguard 70's recording after DG's return from Europe (both of which are OK), and the aforementioned Jazz Moods: Round Midnight compilation.

I enjoyed this more than I expected. The first track and the last, DG's takes on As Time Goes By and Body and Soul, I particularly enjoyed. But also really enjoyed DG's really beautiful playing throughout, as well as his support. Good romantic album too.

Check out It's You or No One, which is a live village Vanguard recording from the 60's.

Incidentally, the "bop" which Dexter is more prominently known for is Hard Bop and not Be-bop, which is the immediate association that most have with the word.

Steely Dan-Aja. (not traditional Jazz, but one of the best at it. Chevy Chase played drums for Steely Dan,(back in the day) And as to suggest himself, "he said they should find a drummer better than he was", (a true gent) Imagine Chevy Chase on the drums in this video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFKSyP5pNE0 AWB-'Things'. (awb, very jazz orientated). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BDDMwKvFOgY

Sonny Rollins - East Broadway Rundown

Recorded in 1966, it sounds timeless in the way all great recordings do.
