    Recording information: Montmartre Jazzhus, Copenhagen, Denmark (08/05/1965).
    This Steeplechase set features Dexter Gordon during his long European sojourn. Recorded live in 1965 in Paris Gordon is accompanied by the great bassist Niels-Henning Orsted Pedersen, pianist Kenny Drew, and drummer Alex Riel. There are four cuts here, and they include the title track, a standard set to a burning tempo, a gorgeous balladic read of "You've Changed," a swaggering swinger in Ben Tucker's "Devilette," and a strutting, bluesed-out version of Miles Davis' "So What." The recording quality can be a tiny bit iffy at times, but the performance is stellar and more than makes up for the few rough spots in the session. Recommended. ~ Thom Jurek
