  • Credits

    Personnel: Jackie McLean (alto saxophone); Dexter Gordon (soprano & tenor saxophones); Kenny Drew (piano); Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen (bass); Alex Riel (drums).
    Veteran tenor Dexter Gordon and altoist Jackie McLean teamed up for a few club dates in 1973 and the results have been released on two Steeple Chase albums; the other one is The Meeting. Unlike the earlier release which focused on lesser-known material, The Source features the saxophonists on three jazz standards (Miles Davis's "Half Nelson," "I Can't Get Started" and Charlie Parker's "Another Hair-Do") in addition to reviving Dexter Gordon's 1947 composition "Dexter Digs In." The music is a bit loose and long-winded ("Half Nelson" is over 18 minutes long) but recommended to straightahead jazz fans. ~ Scott Yanow
