"Challenging and entirely musically rewarding ... comprises an album's worth of fascinating listening."

"As this excellent album shows, he was at the peak of his playing power and accompanied by talented colleagues at every step."
- All About Jazz

The title of this 1963 date refers to Dexter Gordon's self-imposed exile in Paris, where he recorded with two other expatriates and a French native. Along with Gordon, pianist Bud Powell and drummer Kenny Clarke were living in Paris and were joined by brilliant French bassman Pierre Michelot. This is a freewheeling bop date with the band working out on standards like Scrapple From The Apple and A Night In Tunisia. In addition, American tunes such as Willow Weep For Me and Stairway To The Stars are included. Gordon is at the very top of his game here, his playing crisp, tight and full of playful fury.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
