5.0 out of 5 stars Dexter's "Gettin' Around" Again 15 Feb 2006
By Michael B. Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Dexter Gordon's "Gettin' Around" may not be universally celebrated but it is great to have it available once again via this RVG Edition. Personally, I find it to be highly enjoyable. I agree that this is not his best effort on Blue Note, but his eight albums for the label are the crowning achievement of his five decade long career. Like most of his Blue Notes, "Gettin' Around" was recorded during a stateside tour (like many jazz musicians in the 60s, Gordon chose Paris as home base over New York). Recorded on May 28 & 29, 1965, this session features Bobby Hutcherson on vibes, and the remarkable rhythm trio of Barry Harris on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass and Billy Higgins on drums. (A brief aside: To get the most out of his U.S. visit, Dex went into the studio a day earlier on May 27th with the same rhythm trio, and Freddie Hubbard instead of Hutch, to cut "Clubhouse." This recording was first released on LP in the 70s, and it was released on CD in 1990. However, with the exception of its inclusion in the Blue Note Box Set, it has been out of print for going on ten years. Now that would be a title worth reissuing in the RVG or Connoisseur series!) The rhythm trio of Harris, Cranshaw and Higgins was the backbone of one of Blue Note's most famous recordings, Lee Morgan's "The Sidewinder," and their chemistry here is as great as ever. And speaking of chemistry, Hutch and Dex have a unique brand, as the vibist's precise, percussive style challenges Gordon to play with more deliberate, pronounced phrasings. Like the original CD issue of "Gettin' Around," this disc adds two bonus tracks (both Gordon originals) not available on the original vinyl, which brings the disc's length to almost an hour. In all, this is a fine outing by Dex and is a title that any discerning fan of Blue Note should not hesitate to pick up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dexter in a Mellotone 22 Jun 2006
By Samuel Chell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Tower of Power is such a commanding storyteller that he can be a heavy load, requiring the listener's undivided attention. "Gettin' Around," a 2006 release of a 2005 Rudy Van Gelder remastering of a 1965 session, finds a more dulcet and demure Dexter. He softens his tone, holds back on the searing top tones, evens out his vibrato, and takes more than a page out of the Lester Young book: this is Dexter in a mellotone, a session that plays well anytime and any number of times.

This is not to say LT isn't up to his usual tricks. On the first chorus of his solo on "Manha de Carnaval" he quotes 3 bars of Victor Young's "Delilah"; during his own "Le Coiffeur" (a cross between the samba "So Nice" and Bird's "My Little Suede Shoes"), he incorporates Debussy's "Claire de Lune." Finally, Dexter does for the sentimental oldie, "Heartaches," what Mobley does for "Remember" on "Soul Station"--refreshing it and transforming it into a hip tune. Only on "Very Saxily Yours," excluded from the original LP, does the tenor giant begin to show his customarily aggressive edge.

Hutcherson stays laid back and in the pocket much as does Barry Harris--both musicians assuming supportive roles that encourage Dexter to keep the flame burning low. Although this may not be a five-star performance, it's likely to receive more plays from me than some of Dexter's more auspicious recording dates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dexter Got Around 29 Oct 2000
By Michael B. Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While the reviews below differ on the merits of this CD, something they all share is a lack of information as to the specifics of this title. Personally, I find Dexter Gordon's "Gettin' Around" to be highly enjoyable. I agree that this is not his best effort on Blue Note, but his eight albums for the label are the crowning achievement of his five decade long career. Like most of his Blue Notes, "Gettin' Around" was recorded during a stateside tour (like many jazz musicians in the 60s, Gordon chose Paris as home base over New York).

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Dexter Gordon fans 28 Dec 2006
By Richard J. Harrison - Published on Amazon.com

An excellent set featuring Bobby Hutcherson on vibes recorded at the Rudy Van Gelder studios after two years in Europe, 'Gettin' Around' is a must for Dexter Gordon fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very listenable, not quite top shelf 12 Mar 2013
By art&science - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is one of two albums recorded by Dexter on a 1965 stateside visit, the other being Clubhouse. Bobby Hutcherson(v) was added to the supporting cast of Barry Harris(p), Bob Cranshaw(b), and Billy Higgins(d) for this particular date. Neither album shows Dexter's playing at the heights of his previous albums in the Blue Note series. What this album does offer is a laid-back exploration of the creative opportunities of this particular ensemble format. It's enjoyable for what it is, but if you want to hear the brilliant peaks of Dexter's playing, his four New York period albums (Doin' Alright, Dexter Calling, A Swingin' Affair, Go!) and his first European albums (Our Man in Paris, One Flight Up) are recommended over this one. The overall ensemble is more together on Gettin' Around than on Our Man in Paris, so it's hard to rate the overall listening experience lower for Gettin' Around in spite of the fantastic playing Dexter showed on Our Man in Paris. Both albums get four stars, for different reasons. Clubhouse gets rated somewhat lower (three stars) because of somewhat uninspired cliche playing.
