Sophisticated Giant: The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon

Join us for an evening with Maxine Gordon as she discusses her late husband, tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon, one of the major innovators of modern jazz. Reading like a jazz composition, the blend of research, anecdote, and a selection of Dexter’s personal letters reflects his colorful life and legendary times. Sophisticated Giant presents the multidimensional man full of humor and wisdom, a figure who struggled to reconcile being both a creative outsider who broke the rules and a comforting insider who was a son, father, husband, and world citizen. Maxine Gordon will be in conversation with Lyle Link.
