Dexter Gordon - Our Man In Paris LP (Blue Note Records) 1966

^My copy of this is a nice early reissue of this classic Hard Bop album from Dexter Gordon. One of the things I like about this particular album is how clean and simple it is. Wholly non-pretentious Jazz. Perfect for background and foreground music. Isn't trying to impress but remains exemplary. Doesn't sound like he's working hard yet clearly years of hard work brought him here. In a way he sounds like he's in a very peaceful place with nothing to prove about being overshadowed by other bigger Blue Note stars of this time period.
