    Landed at my nest yesterday. On heavy rotation now! BTW: superb liner notes by Scott E. Brown who hopefully will have his expanded and updated James P. Johnson biography published at some point in time within the next years...
  5. From December 31, 2015 Dexter Gordon newsletter: http://dextergordon.org/ Fulfilling A Wish in 2016 Before Dexter's death in 1990, he asked me to complete the book he began after the Academy Award nomination and what he referred to as the "movie star" year. 2016 will see the completion of the book,Dexter Calling: The Life and Music of Dexter Gordon, for University of California Press. The Dexter Gordon Society was founded in 2013 to archive, preserve, and present the research that I have compiled over the past 25 years, which includes all of the research done for this book. By supporting The Dexter Gordon Society, you will help keep alive one of the world's most illustrious musical legacies and help continue the ongoing preservation of Dexter's legacy through archival work, publication, research, musical production and performance. Any amount that you can contribute will be used to further these efforts. We are eternally grateful for your generosity. Maxine Gordon
