Gingerbread Boy

Dexter Gordon

Gordon: February 27, 1923 – April 25, 1990

First written and recorded in 1962 by sax player Jimmy for his sixth album, “Gingerbread Boy” would later be covered by many others, including Miles Davis.

At this time Dexter Gordon was laser-focused on producing bop – working with the great Freddie Hubbard and showing off his skills at the Montreux Jazz Festival.
