This is Dexter Gordon at his finest. As one of the most prolific sax players off his time, this album is a showcase for his talent to play and embellish on the most simple melodic lines. As a sax player myself, the album influenced me massively, his tone and 'behind the beat' timing is unique. This version of 'Cheesecake' is perhaps his best recording, with his repetition and variation you can't help but get taken into his own world of sound. This is the first album of his that I bought and I have subsequently nearly completed my collection of Dexter Gordon - I need not say more, except buy it and you will understand what I felt when first hearing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Dexter's best 25 Jun 2004
By Ian Thumwood TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is a cracking album and I totally agree with the other reviewer as this is a disc that is frequently in my CD player.
Although my preference would be for the other Blue Note recorded in Paris with Kenny Clarke and Bud Powell, this is a hugely enjoyable set, Dexter playing with his customary wry sense of humour and backed by a hard-hitting rythmn section. Like many other discs of the era on the Blue Note label, the recording quality is good and the standard of material is very high. No duff tracks on this one.
Dexter's style of playing with his huge, impressive tone was unique - owing something to the more Romantic players of the generation of Coleman Hawkins but taking on the harmonies and rythmns of Be-bop. This is a good introduction to one of the kings of the tenor including barn-storming swingers, a latin treatment of "Love for sale" and a couple of exceptionally well crafted ballads. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars First dip into the Jazz pool... 7 Oct 2009
By Spin
Format:Audio CD
I am not a life-long Jazz fan. Lately, though, I have ventured into this rather sectretive world of improvisation and personal expression and have been quite surprised at what I have found. I have been buying the Rudy Van Gelder editions of certain releases (for no particular reason other than the fact that the first one I bought was marvelous) and am starting to appreciate the appeal of Jazz. Dexter Gordon's "GO" is a wonderful album. I bought it because I appreciate Sax more than trumpet. This is, from a novices point of view, an album that can be played at any time, but in particular when you are trying to charm your better half. Joking aside, I have taken to listening to these RVG recordings even when I am working, and Dexter's "GO" is my favourite. Soulful, humourous, supplemented by gorgeous piano and percussion, I cannot recommend this cd highly enough.
