    MORE POWER is the second album to draw from the late, great tenorman's April 1969 sessions (THE TOWER OF POWER was the first). It easily equals its predecessor in improvisational brilliance and inter-band chemistry. An unusual aspect of these sessions is the presence of a second tenor, the legendary James Moody, whose smooth, lyrical style contrasts well with Gordon's breathy urgency. The marvelous, underappreciated pianist Barry Harris provides thoughtful, expressive accompaniment throughout, creating a finely textured landscape over which Gordon can make his improvisational journeys. From the Brazilian-inflected feel on Jobim's "Meditation" to the rough-and-ready bop of the Tad Dameron classic "Lady Bird," MORE POWER glows with eloquence and warmth, making it an indispensable part of the Gordon catalogue.
