Dexter Gordon had a long association in Copenhagen especially Montmartre. Last night at the first of a series of three concerts held at Jazzhus Montmartre the young American saxophonist Tivon Pennicott and three Danish jazz legends came together to celebrate Dexter Gordon. Tivon was joined by Alex Riel (drums), Mads Vinding (double bass) and Søren Kristiansen (piano) and gave a terrific performance in a packed Montmartre.
Both Mads Vinding and Alex Riel played often with Dexter Gordon and it was fitting that the evening opened with a short introduction from Dexter Gordon's widow and long term manager, Maxine Gordon.
A nostalgic evening with some great music and magic moments from all four musicians. A library of photos is here
