Gutsy tenor saxophonist Sax Gordon has recorded and toured
with Luther "Guitar Junior" Johnson, Duke Robillard, Matt
"Guitar" Murphy and Kim Wilson, and is featured on recordings
by Pinetop Perkins, Champion Jack Dupree, Billy Boy Arnold,
and most recently Mississippi Heat (Warning Shot, Delmark
839). Now with 4 solo albums and his own show, he brings rocking
sax around the globe. But while gaining recognition as a blues
and R&B player, Gordon continued playing soulful, straight-ahead
jazz with swing-masters like Jay McShann, Jimmy Witherspoon,
and Soul-Jazz heroes Jimmy McGriff, Bernard Purdie, Melvin
Sparks, Idris Muhammad, and Reuben Wilson. On In The
Wee Small Hours, his first jazz release, Gordon goes back
to the classic organ combo sound and a relaxed session of
jazz standards with a deep and soulful sound.
