Dexter Gordon Sound Salon

Celebrate the life and legacy of tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon (1923–1990), one of the major innovators of modern jazz. Join an informal guided listening event, with special guest Maxine Gordon, author of the new book Sophisticated Giant: The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon. Like a jazz composition, this sound salon will casually blend anecdote, expert commentary, recitation from Dexter’s personal letters, with, of course, lots of music from the Library’s vast recorded sound collections.

Reserve your general admission seat HERE starting  February 19, 2019.

(If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts’ Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email. For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.)

This event takes place in the Library for the Performing Arts’ Cafe, on the first floor, Lincoln Center plaza level.  Enter via the Cafe entrance by ascending the stairs at the corner of Amsterdam Ave. and West 65th St. Mobility impaired people may enter via 111 Amsterdam Ave.
