2003 reissue

Recorded live in 1965, Wee Dot is one of saxophonist Dexter Gordon's many European dates, recorded in Stockholm, with a rhythm section comprised of the hottest cats on the Swede scene at the time. The program is standard swinging bop that opens with a particularly fiery rendition of "Take the 'A' Train." Gordon introduces each tune with his gracious, hipster vernacular and trademark dry elegance. There are only four tunes on the set, but they are all extended workouts. The closer, an updated, finger-popping redo of "Second Balcony Jump" (recorded by the saxophonist during his Blue Note years) is surely the finest moment of an already excellent set.
