Anybody seen the Dexter Gordon Round Midnight movie?
Not many good dialogs, but then again I didn´t watch it for the dialogs.

What an amazing player! Wish I was only half that good! Shame that all the good guys from that era past away way too soon!

Something I found remarkable was how far back his Ligature was on his Otto Link mouthpiece...

Regards!

I really don't think that there are too many people around this forum who haven't seen the movie in all these years that the Tavernier movie has been around............however not all the guys of the by-gone days died young, some of those , although few years younger than Dexter Gordon who was born in 1923 and died in 1990, are still around such as Sonny Rollins 1930, Archie Shepp 1937, Pharoah Sanders 1940 and a few others.
